Thanks to a patch written by Alex Martelli, I was able to compile gmp
4.2 on a Mac Intel.

make check succedeed, too.

Since he's got few time, he asked me to submit the patch.

The problem was that apple ld on x86 has the same "bug" that has on
PPC, that is to say it does not link .o files that contain only data
and no functions.

I suppose the very same patch should work for older gmp versions, too.

Unfortunately --enable-cxx still does not work (unless disabling asm
with --host ).
If I have some time I'm going to investigate this.
