curious. I've just did a clean checkout and am building it here to see
if it fails on RedHat. 

My system runs config, creates config.m4 which says:
config.status: creating gmp.h

beyond that it is building normally. So I suspect there is some test
in the config mechanism that is failing in SUSE. I'm trying to read
the config mechanism now.

Sure, I can split them out. The license business is at the top because
we're all lawyers first and programmers second :-) You'll also notice
that there is a license at the top of every source file (about like 
putting a license and patent information on every car part). Sorry,
the whole legal thing just sets me off.... all further discussion of
this will be on axiom-legal.
