have many thanks for looking into this. It was just a "harmless" ./Build
:-) Now i did an svn cleanup --remove-unversioned --remove-ignored in
the repo and then it compiled fine all the way through. So i guess Build
was disturbed by some obsolete file (iirc, there was one, only not in
the gmp/native/ dir). And sorry for posting to the wrong list, should
have been tlbuild, yes.

Best Regards, Hartmut
