Hi Frederic,

gmp is the (excellent) GNU MP library. See http://www.swox.com/gmp/ for 
its details.

In any case, if you want to install Kaffe from an RPM instead of 
building it from source, I'd suggest using the latest RPM from 
JPackage.org, who coincidentally package a lot of nice free software 
written in the Java programming language in RPM format. See 
http://www.jpackage.org/rpm.php?id=2425 for the Kaffe 1.1.5 RPM's details.
