Hi Malcolm,

I have checked in a few changes addressing the problems you encountered.

To get the corresponding source, get the latest version of the
Eclipse 5.10 patch branch from the Sourceforge repository as follows:

cvs checkout -r patches_5_10 Eclipse

configure should now recognise the Intel Mac, using the ECLiPSe
architecture name i386_macosx.  I have also added support for
building without gmp to make initial porting easier.
Try to configure as follows:

./configure --without-gmp

I have fixed these bugs.

Not sure about this.

If you build without gmp support, this shouldn't occur.
