I'm doing some crypto work which will involve some large integers.
I can save myself a few days work if someone knows of a public domain
large integer math package.  The package needs to be portable among
different flavors of UNIX/hardware.

Any pointers would be appreciated.

I think you will find the multiprecision math package you need in the file 
PGP10SRC.ZIP and PGP10.ZIP, which is the Pretty Good Privacy public
key encryption program.  This has C source code that does integers up to about
1000 bits (and it can be extended beyond that).  It's pretty fast, too.
It was distributed over the net in early June, and there are news items
on it in sci.crypt.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO v IBM.
