Following from my mail half an hour or so ago, here is what happens on 
t2 if the Sun compiler is used, but the location of the gmp library and 
header files are specified.

I've seen very similar error messages about __gmp.... undefined, when 
using the GNU compiler too.

I suspect perhaps the configure script might do with a bit more 
checking. It's quite possible people build gmp with one compiler, and tr 
y try to build ecl with another. (I happen to know on 't2' that gmp in 
/usr/local was built using the gcc compiler from /usr/sfw/bin/gcc, but 
in general it would be good if you could detect some of the problems 
that people might get. I suspect if the right options to configure are 
used, this probably would build, but it far from easy to find out how.)
