  Yes, you've run into a bug that I found and reported earlier
  this year.  Here's my post and Torbjorn Granlund's reply:
  I assume what's happened is what Torbjorn described:  a newer
  libtool has arrived, the bug in libtool is still not fixed, and
  so his temporary fix broke again.
There are surely newer libtools, but the one in gmp 4.2.1 has not
changed since gmp 4.2.1 was released...

If somebody decides to work on this, and finds a solution, please let
us know so we consider the change for the next release.
