Using GMP by OpenCOBOL under cygwin

I'm trying to install Open COBOL on my PC, and running into an issue with 
the (required, minimum 4.2.1) GMP.
Installed the latest GMP library the usual way (configure; make; make 
install), and all seemed fine.
However, when I run configure for open-cobol, I get the following Ab-End 

checking getopt.h usability... yes
checking getopt.h presence... yes
checking for getopt.h... yes
checking gmp.h usability... yes
checking gmp.h presence... yes
checking for gmp.h... yes
checking for __gmp_randinit in -lgmp... no
configure: error: GMP 3 or later is required

I didn't see anything about this in the archives -- help anyone?
