  As you may expect, I have every variation of Sun Studio from rev 8 through
  12.1 on everything from 15 year old Sparc to quite modern systems in the
  Blastwave build farm. I can tell you that I have long since given up on
  using these compilers for GMP but I do use them for everything else.
  Almost everything. The GCC 4.3.4 compiler ( also avail from Blastwave )
  works flawlessly on every platform and I get excellent results.
  I just need to calrify, because perhaps I need to go back to the Studio
  compilers, do you want me to try using the Studio compilers for the latest
  GMP? I think I tried it once or twice and I hit bugs in every case. If you
  need someone to hammer the Studio compilers then I can give it a try.
I think it would be nice to make GMP build with as many compilers as
possible, unless they are too badly broken.  E.g., gcc 4.3.2 is too
broken, and a compiler dumping core on GMP sources is also probably too

Having said that, I prefer to not spend much  time on this myself.
