Porting the MPZ part of the GMP library to Symbian OS

Hello all,

I am currently working on a mobile project that requires big integer 
arithmetics in Symbian OS
(versions from 7.0s onward).

I want to create a LGPL-ed Symbian library that will at first use the 
"generic" sources of GMP
(then possibly the ARM sources) to achieve the big integer arithmetics 
functionality. I have already
started the porting process,  and I have progressed from several 
thousand compile / link errors
to some 3 errors. One of  these errors is, however, very, very stubborn.

My goal would be to make GMP (the MPZ part) compilable for all Symbians 
from 7.0s onwards,
add some Symbian-style wrapper for the GMP types, and add some automatic 
tests of correctness.
I believe that this can be done fairly quickly, now that most of the 
compile errors have been removed,
but I will need some informed help.

Is there anyone who would be interested in helping me a bit? If yes, I 
will start specifying what needs
to be addressed.

Best regards

Marian Kechlibar
