Does changing line 36 of includes/mkDerivedConstants.c from

#if defined(mingw32_HOST_OS) || defined(solaris2_HOST_OS)

It's bundled as the devel library is often not available on Windows

Looking at the configure output and config.log might reveal why the
build system thinks you don't have gmp installed.
