Re: READ ME: updating mpc, mpfr, and eventually gmp

I've had intermittent similar problems with NetBSD for at least three years now. I have no idea what the problem is, though. I've suspected some sort of memory corruption, but was never able to make any progress in tracking it down.

I tried again, this time noticed that the choking point was in libgmp.

So maybe it was the new stuff: mpc, mpfr and gmp.

Maybe not compatible with existing gcc, or maybe an error in the code.

Things I could try would be to try to build, from pkgsrc, gcc-aux or
a newer version of gcc.  Or maybe from NetBSD 6.1_STABLE if that boots,
but then I have the same old(?) gcc.

Another possibility would be to do the same from FreeBSD, using
gcc-aux or a newer gcc from ports.
