x64 linux, x86 program and libgmp shared library

I think, libgmp.so* should be available under /usr/lib64/ if you use ghc.

There are rpm packages, i.e. SuSE

In order to create binaries with libgmp being statically linked in, it
is possible to copy libgmp.a into ghc'c libdir so that those binaries
can run on systems with libgmp.so.
