Thanks for your statement.
@ Torbjörn: So if i understand you right, GMP need some c-libs, which also have to run/compiled on/for the embedded CPU.
I am from the small microcontroller world, running without OS normally. GMP is written to use it with OS on a PC or so, is this right ?
So may I have to adapt things in GMP lib, ( publish it ), and then use it in our project.
Ok, another way is to find a lib handling with big integers and that is still designed for embedded CPUs.
==> So if anyone remembers such a (competitive) lib, please post it !
best regards and a nice weekend.

So I ask me if it is possible to use your lib on such a device, may
someone have experience that way ? How can I check if its working?
Read the GMP manual on how to compile GMP. I believe you'll find a section on cross compiling there too, which might be relevant here.
GMP requires certain C lib support, soa "freestanding" C will not work so easily.
