  I have mingw64 on a windows 7 64 bit system.
  I have the source gmp-5.0.2.
  configure fails with "cannot compute suffix of executables" although it 
  determnines the executable is a.exe.
This is too little information for us to make a good guess.

Take a look at the online manual, which you an find at the GMP webpages.
The page therein on reporting bugs will explain what information we need
to assist with various problems.

  Has anyone built libgmp on windows 7 64-bit?
Many people have done that.
