Windows Binaries for GMP 4.2.2

If I can just (perhaps) add some fuel to the fire .... do these legal 
considerations impact upon the way I distribute binaries of perl modules 
that use the gmp (and mpfr) libraries.

For example, if I build (on Windows, for example) the perl module Math::GMP, 
*statically linked* against the gmp library, can I simply make that 
Math::GMP Windows binary available for download ? Or do I need to include 
some additional "stuff" (for want of a better word) with that distro ?

Note: I'm not concerned about the redistribution rights of Math::GMP 
itself - there's no problems with that - I'm just wondering about the impact 
of the distribution of those Math::GMP binaries upon the *gmp* licensing.
