  I downloaded the snapshot gmp-5.0.0-20100123.tar.lz, but was unable to find
  how to uncompress it (some hints how to use the .lz snapshots would be useful).
There is a README in the directory.  The 2nd paragraph says:

"The snapshots are compressed with lzip, since it is the currently best
free compression program."

So you need to get lzip, which should be available in any decent package
system on GNU systems or BSD systems.
