My name is Adham Khalile
First off, I don't really think that's a bug, so if I'm addressing the
wrong staff a redirection would be appreciated :) .
I'm unable to make anything with the Makefile.
1. Download latest gmp from official gmp site (gmp-6.2.1.tar.lz
2. lzip then tar to extract; cd gmp<*>
3. sudo ./configure --enable-cxx --prefix=/usr
PS in the above I tried many other configurations, none seems to be helping
with the next troublesome step
4. make tries:
     4.1 $> sudo make outputs: make: *** No targets specified and no
makefile found.  Stop.
     4.2 $> sudo make check outputs: make: *** No rule to make target
'check'.  Stop.
     4.3 $> sudo make install outputs: make: *** No rule to make target
'install'.  Stop.

in both Makefiles (in and am) I can see the rules,
help would be appreciated.
uname -a output (if helpful):
Linux kali 5.15.0-kali3-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.15.15-2kali1 (2022-01-31)
x86_64 GNU/Linux
My purpose of install gmp is to be able to"# include <gmp.h>" in other C
programs on my machine (i.e., same linux, I even tried to give
--host=x86_64-linux-gnu --target=x86_64-linux-gnu to the ./configure step
with x86_64-linux-gnu and it also didn't help)
