Configure is barfing 'cause you don't have it. Here's info about GNU Bignum: http://gmplib.org/ You'll need to install it, and then try compiling again. Of course, GNU Bignum has it's own set of dependencies you'll need to work through.... Have fun, Stuart (Who has been bitten in the past by this Guile problem when building other packages.)

Are you installing on Linux or OSX? Which version? It looks like you're installing from source by hand ... why not use DMG / PKG / DEB / MacPorts / Fink or whatever? - MLD

sorry i already do have gmp-4.2.4 installed, thats what's required right? davidkierz-macbook:gmp-4.2.4 davidkierz$ ls -la /usr/local/lib/ | grep gmp -rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 274064 Jan 23 22:56 libgmp.3.4.4.dylib lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 18 Jan 23 22:56 libgmp.3.dylib -> libgmp.3.4.4.dylib -rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 516472 Jan 23 22:56 libgmp.a lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 18 Jan 23 22:56 libgmp.dylib -> libgmp.3.4.4.dylib -rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 797 Jan 23 22:56 libgmp.la is there some reason guile is not seeing the libgmp files?
