  Yes, I did. I had done this exercise on ubuntu (sun virtual box) and was

  cases is the same.

Er, this does not make sense.  You say that a successful build had the
same config.log contents as an unsuccessful build?  Then, a successful
build had fatal error messages in config.log, or an unsuccessful build
had a config.log which appears fine.

Please try again: Read config log from the unsuccessful build.  It is
not hard, and it should enlighten you on what needs to be adjusted on
your system, or how to correctly tailor you configure command in order
to accomodate your system's quirks.

  Uploading the config.log file is blocked here at my workplace.

This should be no problem, reading config.log does not require a GMP
