i found a problem in your configure/make construct.

i use the version 6.1.2 downloaded here:

i'm running on OSX 10.9.5

if i do it from a folder where the path contains spaces it fails.

i found a guy had this same issue like 5 years ago, see:

i got that exact same issue and fixed it by removing all spaces from the
path i was working in.
make clean
make check

works properly.

before it would fail with:

libtool:   error: cannot find the library 'last-path-element/gmp-6.1.2/l
ibgmp.la' or unhandled argument 'last-path-element/gmp-6.1.2/libgmp.la'

where last-path-element is the last element of the path-string if you split
it on space(s).

so its clearly a configure issue affecting the Makefile
