Where did you get GMP.PAS from? AFAIK all that is available is a unit  
written for gpc, which is not compatible with fpc.

If I can take a look at the source perhaps I can help. If you can  
provide a pointer (URL) to the GMP.PAS unit I can download and examine  
it and help with troubleshooting.

FreePascal comes with an automated h2pas program for converting *.h  
files into *.pp or *.pas files. Maybe it's handy in this case. I wonder  
how well it will cope with gmp.h subtleties.
