     We in the GMP project would like to have "make check" run through our
     testsuite for both the static and shared libs (when both are built).
  This is only necessary if there are significant differences (in
  user-visible behavior) between a static and shared-lib build.  That
  sounds weird to me.  What am i missing?

Certainly the shared and static lib should perform the same operations.
We want to check that configuration and compilation worked correctly by
having "make check" test both.

We run very extensive tests on about 400 configurations before release.
Unfortunately, users use other compiler releases, other assemblers, and
other linkers, and in other combinations.  Bugs or portability problems
do happen "in the field".
