  On my Debian 6.0.4 AMD 64 system (just installed yesterday), GMP
  v5.0.4 (downloaded from, not patched or modified at all)

  I'm trying to create a sort of minimal compiler system, but with newer
  versions of libraries. The configure I'm running is the following:
  LDFLAGS="-L$1/lib" CFLAGS="-I$1/include" CPPFLAGS="-I$1/include" ./configure --prefix="$1"
You should not override CFLAGS selectively like that, GMP's configure
will then assume you know better that it does, and it will refrain from
adding its own flags.

Did you try a plain build, as described in before you reported these
