Bad GMP build using Xcode 2.3 on Apple PowerMac G5 pbmcl at
Mon Jun 5 07:53:29 CEST 2006

Apple Power Mac G5 users should be aware that the version of the gcc compiler (gcc 4.0.1 Build 5341) included with Apple's recent developer tools release (Xcode 2.3) fails 'make check' when building GMP 4.2.1. Specifically, the mpz test 'reuse' fails. 

GMP 4.2.1 passes all 'make check' tests when built with gcc 4.0.1 Build 5247, which is included with Xcode 2.2.

The Xcode disk includes an uninstall script in the 'Utilities' folder if you have already loaded version 2.3.
