I'm guessing this is the same problem with gmp on OS X, but I got it
during the ./configure step, so thought I'd pass along the error

mba:ghc- xich$ ./configure --prefix=/Users/xich/projects/ghc8
checking for path to top of build tree... dyld: Library not loaded:
  Referenced from:
  Reason: image not found
configure: error: cannot determine current directory

You made reference to the wiki build instructions... do you have a
link to the ones you mean? I can try following them.
