The GMP 6.3.0 release notes list under "FEATURES":
Support for 64-bit Arm under Macos.
There has been previous discussion of possible problems using GMP in
macOS because Apple reserves register x18 for undisclosed purposes,
whereas GMPs mpn/arm64 assembly code uses that register.
Does GMP release 6.3.0 still use x18 in mpn/arm64 assembly code under macOS?
If you know where to look (mpn/arm64) then isn't it quite plain to
answer your question?
