I'm trying to compile gmp on and getting the following errors

make[3]: *** [t-cast] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving dirctory '/home/builder/rpm/BUILD/gmp-4.1.4/base/test/cxx'
make[2]: *** [check-am] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving dirctory '/home/builder/rpm/BUILD/gmp-4.1.4/base/test/cxx'
make[1]: *** [check-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving dirctory '/home/builder/rpm/BUILD/gmp-4.1.4/base/test'
make: *** [check-recursive] Error 1
error:  Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.19530 (%check)

RPM build errors:
   Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.19530 (%check)

I have attached an image of the VMWare screen with futher out put ..

Any ideas on this would be grate ... Would the fact that it's being 
complied in a virtual machine be a problem. ?
