This causes GCC bootstrap to fail on Darwin systems (whose system compiler is clang-based). Since PR 61146 was resolved as INVALID (but I’m not sure it’s the right call, see below), I’ve filed a separate report for the bootstrap issue (

Regarding PR 61146, I agree with Marc Glisse (comment #3) that the casts in question look weird and should probably be removed, as was done in GMP. This code should be cleaned up, and it will fix bootstrap on clang-based target coincidentally, without adding another kludge.
