No problem: You don't need Dev-C++ for building GMP; that can be taken
care of entirely by MSYS.
Dev-C++ is just a GUI for MinGW, actually.

If you've used MSYS before and haven't had a problem with this, then it
shouldn't be a problem now.
However, I had limited success attempting to build GMP with other versions
of MSYS besides 1.0.10; so if you do run into any inexplicable errors, you
might try that.
Good luck, and be sure to check out the guides buried in the DevPaks, too;
they cover a number of potential problems that the first guide doesn't. The
direct links are here, since the devpaks.org site is apparently down right

build, for x86)
