I downloaded and installed pari-v.2.3.3. The readline problem from
Tiger has persisted into Leopard, but the fix described in the FAQ
also still works. I simply had to change the directory name
readline-5.0 to readline-5.2 in the cd command when installing
readline-5.2. Re-installing pari-2.3.3 after installing readline, it
glommed onto readline-5.2 even without any flags on the Configure
command. I also threw in the extra Galois group and elliptic curves
data packs, and they got installed OK as well.
So far, so good. I've used gp to do a number of calculations, and
haven't made anything bad happen.
I figure the next step is install gmp, the Gnu multiprecision library,
and then re-install pari using the --with-gmp flag in the Configure
command. But while checking for documentation and such for gmp, I
found the page
which basically says the Xcode C compiler won't compile gmp properly.
What I want to know is,
(a) Is that caution out of date?
(b) If not, what do I have to do to work around the problem?
