yes, the problem was reproducible. The file invert_limb_table.asm was missing (or not in the right place). I've been working on it and solved the issue restarting from scratch downloading the package once again and replaying the installation procedure. 
Possible that something went wrong in the previous download/tar -x ...

Thank you very much

This looks strange.

Is the problem reproducible, i.e., does it fail a second time?

There is a suitable file in the mpn/x86_64 directory, and that directory
is included in the path.  Please check that it is there
