Re: Need help porting GMP to AMD64

x86 inline assembly often makes use of the 32 bit registers that start with an 
'e' i.e %esp, %ebp. When compiled for 64-bit the registers names are 
different with the 'e' registers now being 'r' registers i.e. %rsp, %rbp. 
This is a gross oversimplification as the number of registers and sometimes 
their functions have also changed. The ABI AMD64 supplement contains a list 
of all changes. If you google for it you should be able to find it.
