GMP detection was _not_ broken in Kaffe 1.0.6. It's slink package gmp2-dev
that don't provide libgmp.so for link process and includes are in a
non-standard place /usr/include/gmp2 :-( This was corrected in
potato as libgmp2-dev provides libgmp.so and install include in
So, if you have potato, you must check that package libgmp2-dev is
installed. Then check if file /usr/lib/libgmp.so (or /usr/lib/libgmp.a)
exist and include file gmp.h is in /usr/include.
If you have slink and don't want to upgrade
to potato, create the folling links (from memory):
/usr/lib/libgmp.so -> /usr/lib/libgmp2.so
/usr/include/gmp.h -> /usr/include/gmp2/gmp.h
Hope this helps.
