Ah, thanks for the correction, Andrew.

Vincent, rather than using LIBRARY_PATH (which doesn't do what you
want when gcc-4.3.1 decides to look in $LIBRARY_PATH/../lib64) you
could use -L to ensure it looks in the directories you want.  Or you
could add lib64 symlinks pointing to $HOME/gmp/athlon64/lib and
$HOME/x86_64/lib, so that you get consistent behaviour from Debian's
gcc and FSF gcc.
