GMP install trouble on OS X Server 10.2.8

I tried to follow the instructions at 
msg04589.html to install ClamAV.

When trying to first 'make' the required GMP 4.1.2, I got the following  

libtool: unrecognized option `--tag=CC'

and GMP failed to install. (I used ./configure  --prefix=/usr/local   
--enable-cxx --enable-fft --enable-mpbsd --enable-mpfr --enable-shared  
--disable-static --with-user=root to configure GMP)

I had a feeling this problem was caused by an outdated version of  
glibtool (1.4.2) in OS X Server 10.2.8. So I went ahead and updated  
everything I could think of. GCC to 3.3, autoconf, automake, sed, gawk,  
and of course libtool all to their latest versions (I used ./configure  
--prefix=/usr for autoconf, automake, sed, gawk, and libtool).

After doing these upgrades, I get a new type of libtool complaint when  
trying to 'make' GMP. And I have to admit, now I'm pretty clueless as  
to why. Can anyone suggest what the problem could be.

/bin/sh ../libtool --mode=compile gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I..  
-D__GMP_WITHIN_GMP -I.. -DOPERATION_`echo mp_bases | sed 's/_$//'`
