and it strikes again, after MPFR upgrade in Rawhide from v3 to v4 last
week. Since then ppc64le and (probably also) aarch64 are
uninstallable in Rawhide :-( MPFR increased its TLS usage
significantly (0xf8 vs 0x364). If I understood the previous discussion
right, then there are some options how to fix the problem. Is there any
outline, when such fix might be available? It would be difficult for
Fedora to roll back everything to MPFR 3.
