Yes, I saw the bug report in Debian, and I did some tests, but I am
also puzzled about this bug.
The problem only appears on amd64 architectures. Unfortunately I don't
have access to an amd64 machine.
However, I think that there are two workarounds that can be tried out
- The first one is building the package without running the tests (I
think that problem appears only when running the tests). I am not
sure if this could be a Debian policy violation or not (I guess
- The other one is trying to recompile gmp with -fexceptions and
then ppl again to see if the problem persists. For details, see
