I tried out this configure.  Didn't really change anything, but I did
see configure print out:

checking for egrep... egrep
using ABI="32"
      CC="gcc -fPIC"
      CFLAGS="-g -O2 -fPIC "
      MPN_PATH=" sparc32/v9 sparc32/v8 sparc32 generic"
checking for function prototypes... yes

And a closer inspection shows that all of the files in build/gmp/mpn are
linked to gmp/mpn/sparc32/v9 files.  I am running on an Ultrasparc II
(and III) machine, so v9 with v8plus is ok.

This explains why I get the error about using v8plus instructions in a
non-v8plus target binary.  I think either configure should link to a
different set of files or configure should pass the correct flags for
the v8plus build.

Haven't figured out how this works, but a build from a few days ago did
this correctly.  I think it used the v8plus compiler flags.
