Looks like a mixture of 64-bit code (libgmp) and 32-bit code for the C++ 
interface / library.  Although I can't really imagine your 'g++' 
defaults to 32-bit, it apparently does.

See , especially:

    Please include the following in any report,
    * The ‘configure’ options you used when building GMP, if any.
    * The output from ‘configure’, as printed to stdout, with any 
options used.
    * The name of the compiler and its version. For gcc, get the version 
with ‘gcc -v’, otherwise perhaps ‘what `which cc`’, or similar.
    * The output from running ‘uname -a’.
    * The output from running ‘./config.guess’, and from running 
‘./configfsf.guess’ (might be the same).
    * If the bug is related to ‘configure’, then the compressed contents 
of config.log.

In your case, also the output of 'g++ -v' would be interesting.

Did you set CFLAGS or CXXFLAGS, or are they set in your environment?
