Great news! You should know that 1) cross-compiling does not bring anything
better than native compilig, and 2) bignums _are_ used during compilation
(for the typechecking algorithm), so if GMP had to cause you some problems
you should know by now. If you want to make sure that your native version
is good, run the tests (make tests) and compare the output with that of
a supported platform. If you used the same flags during compilation, you
can also compare the C files in the lsp, clos and cmp directories. The
differences should be minimal.
