Does it work ok if you leave out "--prefix=/c/gmp" ? (Obviously 'make
install' will then fail to install it where you want, but you could always
manually copy into C:/gmp.)

I don't have any trouble running
"./configure --disable-static --enable-shared" in the msys shell, but I've
never tried it with a "--prefix" argument. (I'm using MingW's gcc-3.4.5 and
msys was installed from MSYS-1.0.10.exe.)

Also, for C++ support I think you'll need to provide the "--enable-cxx"
argument to configure.
