Thanks guys;

I'm sorry for the post.  Was working on this for two days and couldn't 
find anything online.  Based on the fact that two versions of gmp 
failed, and the error message mentioning a path error, I replaced $Home 
with the exact path and finally got gcc and gmp to compile.  Though with 
an older version of gmp.  Will try 6.1 later today.  If I had waited 
another 1/2 day before inputting this bug report I wouldn't have wasted 
your time.  I had another clue, in that make had worked without a 
--prefix command in the configure.  But I didn't want to install and 
overwrite the operating system gcc install.

This is my first time building gcc from scratch.  Thank you for your 
support and patience.
