compilation on fedora 23: some worrying "error messages"
Compilation on the new computer (with fedora 23, due for release tomorrow ?!!? according to Wikipedia) produced several worrying messages in
Fatal error; compilation terminated However, compilation proceeds anyway!

I shall try to investigate this, but it may take a long time. The new computer seems to be quite fast (e.g. more than twice as fast as my old portable), but it takes ages to compile: compiling and linking one example took about 1 minute real time (about about 1 sec CPU time).

... get a new portable (remember: use or lose it ;-)
Jokes apart: I think we should not worry too much about a machine with no local disk (I guess that's where the problem is)

I'm compiling some other programs; compilation time varies from 2mins to almost 5mins. I'll ask the technical guy if this is normal. Actually I think it is the linking which is taking so long... I don't think we can do anything about this (except perhaps remove lots of functions from CoCoALib, which is hardly practical).

- % Done changed from 0 to 10
- Estimated time set to 3.10 h
Fatal error messages appeared once again when I tried building CoCoALib from a new unpackaged tar file. The errors about about the file
gmp.h not being found during the creation of the dependency files.
I configured using a non-installed version of GMP-6.1.0.
Anyway, the internal dependencies should be independent of where the CoCoA source tree is.
