Comment (by Chris Johns):

 Building on M2 Pro with Ventura 13.3 and Xcode Version 14.3 (14E222b)
 results in segmentation faults in `cc1` and `cc1plus`. Inspecting the
 MacOS crash reports showed invalid accesses to the stack guard area of
 memory. A typical crash report is:
 Exception Type:        EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV)
 Exception Codes:       KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE at 0x00000001699dbff0

 The `FAR` is in the stack guard area. The crashes are always in the MPFR
 library and relate to calls to GMP. The GMP tests pass. The MPFR built by
 `gcc` tests fail and a hand built MPFR tests pass.

 The crash leaves the build so changing to the MPFR build directory lets
 you run the tests:
 cd build/arm-rtems6-gcc-cf59d86-newlib-17ac400-arm64-apple-
 make check
 The results are:
 Testsuite summary for MPFR 4.2.0
 # TOTAL: 197
 # PASS:  97
 # SKIP:  3
 # XFAIL: 0
 # FAIL:  97
 # XPASS: 0
 # ERROR: 0
 The failures are all seg faults.

 I upgraded to MPFR 4.2.0 as it does not need the `fix-mac-arm64-mpfr-
 config.patch` patch. Building by hand and referencing the `gcc` build GMP
 has the following results:
 Testsuite summary for MPFR 4.2.0
 # TOTAL: 197
 # PASS:  194
 # SKIP:  3
 # XFAIL: 0
 # FAIL:  0
 # XPASS: 0
 # ERROR: 0
 I provided the same `configure` command line used by `gcc` when it builds
 the library internally. There are no sig faults.

 I ran the tests for GMP and there were no errors.

 Close inspection of the build and the `config.log` reveals a difference.
 The `gcc` build has:
 and they are not present when building by hand. The `config.log` shows:
 configure:19315: checking for __gmpn_invert_limb
 configure:19315: result: yes
 The hand built MPFR has:
 configure:19315: checking for __gmpn_invert_limb
 configure:19315: result: no
 This is the only difference I could see.
