Well, I install gmp using DarwinPorts, so I'm trusting that they
configured things correctly. I don't see any regression failures in
IntInf functions (which is where MLton uses gmp).
I also used Fink at an earlier point, and their version of gmp worked
fine as well.
I've never attempted to self-build gmp.

It is a debate that is raised every once in a while. I think the
feeling is that gmp is pretty widely available, and it is useful to pick
up bug fixes when the gmp package is updated.
I'll try to build a statically linked package this afternoon.
