IA-64 GMP broken

I've been trying to track down a problem with sawfish under Linux
on an Itanium machine, and I'm reasonably certain GMP is the

I've already reported one problem I identified and "fixed" to the
Debian maintainer. On line 212 of mpn/generic/get_str.c, there is
a 'while (s != str)' loop that never terminates in certain
situations because s is less than str to begin with. Presumably,
that in itself is an error, but it seems better to be safe by
specifying s >= str.

We've been experiencing segfaults and sigills being generated by
free(). Here's a typical backtrace:
Program received signal SIGILL, Illegal instruction.

It finally occurred to me to run 'make check' against GMP, and I
received 19 failures out of the 21 tests.

Also, the kernel issued some memory alignment warnings during the check:
lt-t-tdiv(18068): unaligned access to 0x600000000000294c, ip=0x20000000002345c0

I have various log and configuration files available if
needed. Please let me know how I can assist.
