With the very last version of the Intel C compiler (9.0.30)
make check fails for GMP 4.1.4.  The only test that fails
is t-mul.  Here is the crucial point:

make[3]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/distrib/objdir/tests/mpz'
make  check-TESTS
make[3]: Entering directory `/usr/local/distrib/objdir/tests/mpz'
PASS: t-addsub
PASS: t-cmp

What could I do to help locating the cause of the problem?
