I'm trying to add gmp support in kaffe. However, while gmp.h is found by 
configure script, this option doesn't seems to be enabled automatically:

.guillaume at silbermann kaffe-1.0.6]$ ./configure:
checking for gmp.h... yes

[guillaume at silbermann kaffe-1.0.6]$ ldd /usr/lib/kaffe/ => /lib/ (0x40014000) => /lib/ (0x40037000)
        /lib/ => /lib/ (0x80000000)

[guillaume at silbermann java]$ kaffe pleac.ch02.part03.Test

Recipe 1
