Think about it for a minute. What kind of compiler would we be
providing if you had to specifically add -I/usr/include to the command
The question was whether you have installed libgmp-devel. That's a
separate package from gmp. You can search for files in packages at:
As to inet_aton not being available, you'd have to inspect the configure
script to see why it thinks it isn't available. As a wild guess, I'd have
to wonder if you are somehow specifying "gcc -mno-cygwin" on the compile
line but still expecting cygwin header files to be available.
