I haven't tried this for the particular case of building GMP, but I have
found that the executable for other examples of custom build steps can
be anywhere you wish, as long as an absolute path to it is specified. 
Thus something like "C:\myprogs\nasm.exe" may work when "nasm" doesn't

OTOH, there may be just too many places where the bare word "nasm" is
used and which are not within your convenient control.

Likewise, though Brian is the undoubted expert.
