I checked out the latest buildroot from git this morning and
unfortunately cannot get it to build successfully.

The build ends like this:
checking whether the
-Os -pipe -Os 
-isysroot /home/irotas/sandboxes/buildroot/build_i686/staging_dir
-mtune=i686 -march=i686 linker
supports shared libraries... yes
checking dynamic linker characteristics... GNU/Linux ld.so
checking how to hardcode library paths into programs... immediate
checking whether gcc __attribute__ ((mode (XX))) works... yes
checking for recent GMP... yes
checking for gmp internal files... no
checking for working alloca.h... yes
checking for alloca... yes
checking for __gmpz_init in -lgmp... no
configure: error: libgmp not found or uses a different ABI.
Please read the INSTALL file -- see "In case of problem".
make: ***
Error 1

I've uploaded the build output, configuration files, and MPFR config.log
to my website:

I also tried downloading 'buildroot-2009.02.tar.gz' and have the same
problems with that version too, so it looks like it's not a new problem.

I don't know if it matters, but I'm building on Ubuntu 8.10 (Linux

Any suggestions?
