It may be worthwhile to improve the code if you can, since the release date of 4.2 and status of any improvements for 64-bit PPC are unknown.
I just installed Tiger and applied your changes. Everything appears to be working correctly. GCC 4.0 has some changes for socket.h that I needed to apply to ECMNet, but nothing significant.

One note is that you have the line "sudo gcc_select 4" in one of your readmes. I think that should be "sudo gcc_select -v 4".

I hope that GMP 4.2 is out soon. I would like to try, but I haven't much time as I have my finger in too many pots at this time. I think all that you need to do is take powerpc32/mul_1.asm, copy it to powerpc64 and then change the code to use the appropriate 64-bit instructions.
