Well, the GMP manual starts by saying:

1 Introduction to GNU MP

GNU MP is a portable library written in C for arbitrary precision
arithmetic on integers, rational numbers, and floating-point numbers.
It aims to provide the fastest possible arithmetic for all applications
that need higher precision than is directly supported by the basic C

I can see the words "portable" and "C", but not Unix (or Unix-ish).
