This is merely to announce that every GMP 5.0.0 nightly prior to
gmp-5.0.0-20100116.tar.lz (Jan 16, 2010), together with all builds of GMP
4.4.-1 after 20091106 (Nov 6, 2009) inclusive, configured with ./configure
--prefix=$BUILDDIR --enable-cxx --target=x86_64-apple-darwin10.2.0
--build=x86_64-apple-darwin10.2.0 --host=x86_64-apple-darwin10.2.0 on a
Macbook6,1 (Intel Core 2 Duo Penryn) using the compiler GCC 4.4.3 (the GNU's
GCC, not Apple's, which is bundled in Xcode) fails with the very same error
when make is issued on it,

ld: in mpn/.libs/gcd_1.o, in section __TEXT,__text reloc 0: not extern and
X86_64_RELOC_GOT_LOAD not supported
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: *** [

] Error 1
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2

5.0.0 since and including January 16th's, 2010 make s successfully. However,
