Hi all,

I ma in the process on trying to compile a perl modeule that requires GMP  and it is giving me a bunch of "undefined" errors. I have tried a few things some people have suggested but I have not beenable to get it to work. The GMP compilation seems to be ok. My UNIX server is running 64 bit and the "make", "make checks" work fine. 
When I go to icompile the perl module (Math::GMP), I get the following errors:

AutoSplitting blib/lib/Math/ (blib/lib/auto/Math/GMP)
/usr/bin/perl -e 'use ExtUtils::Mksymlists; Mksymlists("NAME" => "Math:
:GMP", "DL_FUNCS" => { }, "FUNCLIST" => [], "DL_VARS" => []);'

Someone pointed that GMP will always compile using 64 bit (q64) anfd that I had to try to modify the configure (this was one option) to compile on 32 bits. I have not been successful doing this.
I am hoping anyone has any suggestions or ideas on how to compile GMP on 32 bit if that is my problem.

Thanks in advance,
