The GMP library fails to build during the toolchain build:
checking size of mp_limb_t... 8
configure: error: Oops, mp_limb_t is 64 bits, but the assembler code
in this configuration expects 32 bits.

./ -m amd64 -U tools
GMP 6.2.1 has better support for Darwin/Mac M1 systems and configures and builds from mainline. At some point we will update our in-tree GMP.

(Adding --disable-assembly to ./configure will get GMP 6.2.0 to build but might not give the right results.)
