  I can't install gmp-4.3.1 library on a mac os x (Snow Leopard). Can someone help me out with this problem.
  When I tried ./configure the following appears:

  I have gcc installed because of Xcode and it is seems to be working fine.
  I checked for the config.log and I don't understand what is wrong.  it shows the following:

Surely, that's not the entire config.log contents?

Please either send the entire config.log (compressed!) as an
attatchment, or answer the following questions:

1. What does
     gcc -m32 -O2 -pedantic -fomit-frame-pointer foo.c
   print, where foo.c is a trivial program, such as "int foo(){}"?

2. If the compilation succeeds, then what does
     file a.out

3. Please repeat step 1 and 2, with -m32 replaced by -m64.

4. Please repeat step 1 and 2 with neither -m32 or -m64.
