reassign 285006 binutils
I have reason to believe that the build failure of gmp (bts 285006) is
caused by the binutils patch applied to fix bts 278836.
Gmp revision 4.1.4-4 was successfully built on 2004-10-24
but revision -5 failed on 2004-11-28
The change in GMP was simply to NOT run the test suite when
cross-compiling. For the ia64 build, obviously, there was
The only toolchain difference between the two was binutils:
binutils_2.15-4 in October but binutils_2.15-5 in November. This
change corresponds to fixing 278836, which had something to do
with "unwind". Gmp failed to find symbol _Unwind_Resume. I figure
the patch must be buggy.
When this bug is fixed, would the ia64-powers-that-be please
schedule a build of gmp.
