This attitude is pretty annoying, and the way you put it is much
worse.  I won't comment on your accusations at all, but wasn't the
strength of the open source approach meant to be `more debugging

But then, obviously bad guys produce bad feedback.  I see.  Anyway
here is a fix (well, a workaround, I didn't need anything more
sophisticated).  Feel free to ignore, I am off.


(/tmp/gmp-2.0.2) $ ./configure
(/tmp/gmp-2.0.2) $ cd mpn
(/tmp/gmp-2.0.2/mpn) $ rm add_n.S addmul_1.S lshift.S mul_1.S rshift.S sub_n.S 
(/tmp/gmp-2.0.2/mpn) $ ln -s ./generic/add_n.c
(/tmp/gmp-2.0.2/mpn) $ ln -s ./generic/addmul_1.c
(/tmp/gmp-2.0.2/mpn) $ ln -s ./generic/lshift.c
(/tmp/gmp-2.0.2/mpn) $ ln -s ./generic/mul_1.c
(/tmp/gmp-2.0.2/mpn) $ ln -s ./generic/rshift.c
(/tmp/gmp-2.0.2/mpn) $ ln -s ./generic/sub_n.c
(/tmp/gmp-2.0.2/mpn) $ ln -s ./generic/submul_1.c
(/tmp/gmp-2.0.2) $ cd .. && gmake all test
