Thanks yet again for the reply.

I'm building gmp with the following configuration:

./configure --host=none-unknown-darwin8.8.1 --enable-shared

It produces (after a make install as root):


Note that if you use the default configuration, which ./config.guess 
reports as:


then the "make check" fails miserably early. And the gmp page itself 
warns that gmp does not yet build correctly for "Macinteltosh" machines.

Have you checked your gmp build for intel macs?

Is there a compelling reason for the compiler (or mllex) to link 
dynamically to the gmp library?

Sorry I'm not knowledgeable enough to dive in and be more specific in my 
help. But I'll gladly do experiments for you.
