With gcc (MinGW) you don't have to link to libgmp.a - you can link directly
to the dll. With Microsoft compilers, however, I don't think you can do
that - you have to link to libgmp.lib. What's the go with Open Watcom - can
you link directly to the dll ? - or do you have to link to libgmp.a ? Maybe
try both ways and see if that helps. Is there a way to create a libgmp.a
suitable for Open Watcom using the def file (as can be done with Visual
Studio) ?
