It looks like a problem with the binary distributions. They include gmp,
but somehow don't install it. As a workaround, you can take gmp.h and
libgmp.a from from the binary tarball and put them by hand into
/usr/local/lib/ghc-6.8.1 (or wherever you installed it). Alternatively you
can install a suitable gmp package using your OS's package manager (you
didn't say which flavour of Linux you're on).
BTW, a better place to ask questions about GHC is
glasgow-haskell-users at haskell.org, you're more likely to get a quick answer.
