On 'fulvia', the Solaris/Intel cluster there is gcc 4.4.1, and it is
there I found the problems. In t2, using the default compiler, gcc
4.2.4 I did not see this problem with inlines.

In any case, ECL has finally built with MPIR on Solaris/Intel without
a single change: just passing the right arguments to the configuration
program. So you might consider the problem kind of solved for Sage,
implying more work for me towards a new release -- either find out how
to avoid the extern inline problems or move towards MPIR (in which
case the release will be delayed)
