 libgmp2 (2.0.2-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * Installed the following Daniel Jacobowitz set of patches:
   * * Add patch for powerpc-linux support (fixes bug#31032, bug#31731).
   * * Remove debian/files in clean target (fixes bug#32323).
   * * Add the patches from the author at
   *   <http://www.matematik.su.se/~tege/gmp/> to fix a number of upstream
   *   bugs (fixes bug#26804):
   *   * A typo in mpq_equal makes it fail if the first compared operand is
   *     negative. This patch corrects the problem. Joe Keane found the
   *     problem and wrote the patch.
   *   * Several errors in mpf_set_str and mpf_get_str make these functions
   *     segfault, and possibly generate incorrect results. This also
   *     affects mpf_out_str, mpf_inp_str, and mpf_init_set_str. This
   *     gzip'ed patch fixes these errors.
   *   * A bug in a test case makes ake check' fail using the N32 ABI
   *     under Irix6. Apply this patch to mpz/tests/t-powm_ui.c to fix the
   *     bug. (Note that the N32 ABI isn't really supported in GMP; you
   *     need to pass -n32 -mips3 -D_LONG_LONG_LIMB' manually to make GMP
   *     build correctly.)
   *   * The performance on SPARC is poor because of a typo that causes
   *     some of the assembly code to be omitted. Apply this patch to
   *     mpn/configure.in to fix this.
   *   * A bug in mpz_invert makes it sometimes return a negative result,
   *     and sometimes not detect when an inverse does not exist. Apply
   *     this patch to mpz/invert.c to fix this.
   *   * A bug in mpq_add and mpq_sub makes them work unreliably due to
   *     references outside of allocated memory. Apply this patch to the
   *     mpq subdirectory to fix this.
   *   * A change to GCC (I think from version 2.8) makes GMP fail to build
   *     on IBM RS/6000 computers running AIX. You'll see complaints of
   *     unrecognized assembly instructions. Pass CFLAGS="-g -O2
   *     -mcpu=power" or CFLAGS="-g -O2 -mcpu=powerpc" to ake' to work
   *     around this. (Choose the form that is appropriate for your system;
   *     if you're unsure which processor type you have, try running
   *     config.guess from the GMP top level directory.)
   *   * A bug in mpz_probab_prime_p makes it work unreliably for numbers <
   *     4. Apply this patch to mpz/pprime_p.c to fix the bug.
   * * Update debian/control to reflect that GNU MP is covered by the LGPL,
   *   not the GPL (fixes: bug#21326).
   * * Build libgmp2.so with -fPIC (fixes: bug#17746, bug#20022).
   * * Fix make check to run with a libgmp2.a; run make check during build.
   * In addition to the above patches, the following changes were made:
   * Renamed the package libgmp2, making it conflict with those replaced.
   *                                         fixes: #28923, #28924
   * Remove both debian/file* and debian/substvars* in clean tag. fixes: #32323
   * provide generic links in libgmp2-dev for header files, libgmp.a, and
   *    libgmp.so. Fixes: #25760, #31309
   * Applied the ARM patches delivered by Jim Pick. Fixes: #33740
   * Removed -Wl from makefile.in to conform to policy.
