There's documentation relating to this at:

To build with a mingw port of gcc, start an instance of the msys shell by 
executing msys.bat (which, for me, is located in C:/MinGW/msys/1.0).

Then, in that msys shell, 'cd' to the top level gmp source folder and run:

./configure --prefix=C:/wherever
or, if you want a shared gmp library (dll), not a static library, instead 

./configure --prefix=C:/wherever --disable-static --enable-shared.

Then run, in order:
make check
make install

Running 'make install' will install the library into C:/wherever. If you 
don't provide a '--prefix' argument to configure 'make install' will install 
the library into what the msys shell considers to be /usr/local - which, for 
me, is C:/MinGW/msys/1.0/local.
