Hi Carsten,

MacPorts does not install gmp as a framework (that is, native OS X  
Instead it installs it as a unix style library, usually in /opt/local/ 

MacPorts patches the file to remove the test for the gmp
framework.  You can do this by hand, then run "autoreconf".  Then
specify --with-gmp-includes=<path to gmp.h> and --with-gmp- 
libraries=<path to libgmp>
to configure to ensure the installed gmp is found.

Best Wishes,
