I have committed your patches. Could you now try building ECL from
scratch as follows

./configure --prefix=$HOME --with-tcp
--with-gmp='--host=none-apple-darwin' --with-system-gmp=no

The flag '--host=...' should be automatically passed to the GMP library
and it is precisely the one that Darwinports uses, deactivating the low
level optimizations and going for a more portable library.

The problem seems to be that Apple uses a completely different assembler
syntax on OSX/Intel and that thus the GMP guys cannot reuse the code
they have for other platforms. Not even GMP 4.2 seems to build on

BTW, non of the tests that failed on your machine are unexpected. Most
of them are related to either MOP issues or accuracy of the signal
handler for floating point exceptions.
