     1The optional gmp-4.2.1 package fails to build on my openSuse laptop,
    10 Here is [ the log] from installing the package.
     3I succeeded to fix it, in the sense that it did build. However, the tests did not pass.
    12 Note that I have already added the `--libdir` option when spkg-install calls `./configure` (that was needed for many other packages on openSuse, see #12313), but it was not enough to solve the problem, and the error without my change looked the same.
     5Therefore I suggest to upgrade the optional gmp package to the latest upstream release.
     7It turns out that the ''unpatched'' upstream code installs and tests fine on my laptop. However, the old gmp spkg was massively patched, for various reasons. I don't know if all of the fixes from the old spkg went upstream.
     9Therefore, I hope that some experts can check on various machines and in various settings, to see whether some of the old patches are still needed.
     11Note that the old `SPKG.txt` remarks that the spkg-install of the optional polymake spkg needs to be updated, if gmp is upgraded. I hope that someone can do that.
