1) PARI has now an optimised inline assembly kernel for the PowerPC
architecture, thanks to Guillaume Hanrot.

Please test it especially on Mac OS X. We have only tested it on Linux.

I checked out ToT and it builds 'darwin-none'. What's the trick to get
darwin-ppc and the corresponding gmp kernel?

Check if you have the file pari/src/kernel/ppc/asm0.h.

It's there (our mail passed in the night) and seems to work.

PS: What the status of PARI shared library support on Darwin ?
I need to port the patch to the new Configure system, but before
I need to know what I can merge and what I cannot.

Yes, that's the question. There were, as I recall, a number of things to deal with to get this to work. I don't have a handle on them all, not being proficient with build issues and pari/gp. I have seen Karim's reply, and his plan may be viable (though that's one of those areas where I'm [militantly] clueless).

I'll reread the old mail on this subject and see if I can reconstruct where we were when I dropped it.
