configfsf.guess is not executable

In the GMP 5.0.5 tarball, configfsf.guess is not executable:

-rw-r--r-- tege/wheel    44343 2012-05-06 13:19 gmp-5.0.5/configfsf.guess

thus running "./configfsf.guess" directly (as requested by the
GMP manual) doesn't work. Either configfsf.guess should be made
executable or the manual should be changed, e.g. by saying:
"sh ./configfsf.guess".
