You attached a gzip-ed version of a gzip-ed version of ... what? The 
"log" starts with:

which () {  ( alias;
  eval ${which_declare} ) | /usr/bin/which --tty-only --read-alias 
--read-functions --show-tilde --sho
w-dot $@
#!/bin/bash -xv

This is not code from GMP, those are not messages from the 
configure&&make&&make check process...

Did you use some kind of script for the whole process?

Almost everything fails. There is probably something wrong in your 
building environment or in the building process.

I'd suggest you to start from a released tarball.
You can find the announce of the last release here:

If you can not build it, please ask to the fedora community. They 
managed to build the package for the fc36 (x86_64) flavour:
I'm sure it is possible to build it also for the core 37 one...

Then, if you find a bug, please read the following page before writing 
again to this list:
