Hi Daryl -

I suspect that you don't have the GMP library installed. Math::GMP is
just a perl interface to it. From the INSTALL document with Math::GMP:


To install this package, you will need a version of the GMP library. You can
get it at the homepage of GMP:



Or, I bet that your distribution has a way to install it, like apt-get
or rpm or yast or whatever is appropriate for your distribution.

Let us know if that doesn't seem to be the problem.

Good luck!
