Did you try any simpler configuraton, just to see if you could something

It is possible that GMP 5.0.x doesn't properly handle --enable-fat on
this platform.  Proper handling would mean to basically ignore it, since
there is no assembly to fatten.

This is just a guess, but this time it is an educated guess.  :-)
