[Solved] Compiling gmp-4.3.2: cannot determine how to define 32-bit

I'm trying to compile gcc-4.7.2, for which I need to compile gmp-4.3.2. However, when I run ./configure for gmp-4.3.2, I get this:

It compiles fine on Debian and Ubuntu installed on the same laptop.
Any ideas on how I can fix this?
Googling led me to http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-l … 00012.html, but I don't see how it's relevant.

You could always look to see how the official package is built: https://projects.archlinux.org/svntogit … ckages/gmp

Re: [Solved] Compiling gmp-4.3.2: cannot determine how to define 32-bit

Thanks, I looked at that file. I can see three differences:

  1. It specifies gcc-libs, and I have gcc-libs-multilib.

  2. And it passes

    --build=${CHOST}

    to configure, which I didn't.

  3. It uses gmp-<ver>a.tar.bz2, but I think there's no gmp-4.3.2a.tar.bz2 available.

I used makepg's CHOST variable (x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu), and tried with gcc-libs instead of multilib, but the same error happens each time.

Re: [Solved] Compiling gmp-4.3.2: cannot determine how to define 32-bit

This is embarrassing. The problem was caused by grep colourising and/or numbering its output. I had set

GREP_OPTIONS='--colour=auto -n'

This is not the first time I have been bitten by that setting. sad
I have replaced it with an alias to grep, since aliases don't affect scripts. I don't know what possessed me to set that variable instead of an alias. Thanks for the help. smile
