i was referring to the people who wrote the first patch which i've seen 
rebased/semi-rewritten rather than the gmp peeps missing it.  i don't think it 
has been submitted yet.

do you have an x86_64 processor and running linux-3.4+ ?  the fastest answer 
is to enable x32 support in your kernel config (CONFIG_X86_X32) and then use a 
Gentoo chroot:

unpack that into a dir, chroot into it, then you'll have a multilib setup with 
x32 as the default ABI.

if you have any troubles, feel free to ask and i'll see what's what.
