I got stuck at the very beginning.

GMP has an autoconf/automake/libtool based configuration system. On a
Unix-like system a basic build can be done with
Some self-tests can be run with
make check
And you can install (under ‘/usr/local’ by default) with
make install

How can I make those commands under a Windows system. I need more details
step by step because I am not familiar with those commands.

Thanks for your reply.
