The issue here appears to be that the build was compiled against the
host's libgmp on account of the the Wiki build instructions [1] being out of
date. I've fixed this particular inaccuracy, but it would be great if
someone familiar with Darwin could take a close look at this page: do a
build of their own, work through the build instructions, and ensure that 
the build instructions are still accurate, fixing any issues.

George or Carter, perhaps one of you could pick this up?
