And, more or less regardless of the GMP version, I'd strongly suggest to 
*not* set CPP/C/CXX/LDFLAGS by yourself, but instead use

     ./configure ... ABI=mode64

or, perhaps less recommendable for a native build,

     ./configure ... --build=powerpc64-ibm-aix6.1.0.0

if you want a 64-bit build, unless you really know what you're doing... ;-)

(GMP should then figure out the appropriate flags by itself.  You could 
afterwards still run 'configure' again, feeding it with slightly 
modified flags if needed.)
