Hey Ken,

just use ABI=32 to set 32 bit mode.

Amazingly, you are not the first person with that problem. Something
similar came up yesterday or the day before, by the way. So spending 10
seconds googling "gmp solaris 32 bit" gives as first hit
http://www.gnu.org/software/gmp/manual/html_node/ABI-and-ISA.html which
explains what to do. Reading the documentation of a library seems to be a
good idea in general before asking people on the mailing list ;)
