make check Failure on Mac

I am only a lesser Unix wizard and I have no pressing need for gmp so  
please don't take steps just for me; but this may help.

'make check' ceases with the last lines being:

collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[4]: *** [t-bswap] Error 1
make[3]: *** [check-am] Error 2
make[2]: *** [check-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: *** [check-recursive] Error 1
make: *** [check] Error 2

I am guessing that this is different than the Mac OS report already  
listed in the "known problems".

Other info:

I shall leave the directory intact in case you need further information.
Let me know if I can help.
