Can't build 32-bit GMP on OS X 10.5.6

I'm trying to build 32-bit GMP on OS X and getting the following error:

Making all in mpn
/bin/sh ../libtool --mode=compile gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I.. - 
D__GMP_WITHIN_GMP -I.. -DOPERATION_`echo fib_table | sed 's/_$//'`  - 
DNO_ASM  -O3 -c -o fib_table.lo fib_table.c
mkdir .libs
  gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I.. -D__GMP_WITHIN_GMP -I.. - 
DOPERATION_fib_table -DNO_ASM -O3 -c fib_table.c  -fno-common -DPIC - 
o .libs/fib_table.o
In file included from ../gmp-impl.h:102,
                  from fib_table.c:4:
../fib_table.h:4: error: syntax error before 'data'
fib_table.c:7: error: syntax error before 'data'

The following configure command was used:

./configure --disable-dependency-tracking  --host=none-apple-darwin

I have also tried with:

./configure --disable-dependency-tracking ABI=32

GMP compiles perfectly in 64-bit mode, but unfotunately, I can't use  

I know "Apple compiler bug" is usually the answer.  I'll be happy to  
report it if I know what the issue is, but unfortunately I'm not a low- 
level enough guy to figure it out.

However, if there's a workaround, I'd be tremendously grateful - my  
project depends on GMP and thus, I'm dead in the water at the moment.
