  I think that for newbies ( like me ) should be some more informations :
  first check if your system has Autoconf,automake, libtool, gcc .
  To do this type in console:
  autoconf --version
  automake --version
  libtool --version
  gcc --version
  Then install gmp. To do this go to directory containing file configure and type in console:
  Some self-tests can be run with
       make check
  And you can install (under /usr/local by default). To do this login as a root and type in console: 
       make install
I recommend that your read the manual, all the information on how to
install GMP is there.  The file INSTALL also gives some quick
instructions, like above (but correct...).
