Which directories are the gmp.h and the libgmp.a files in? In my GMP 
build dir, gmp.h is in the build dir, libgmp.a is in .libs/. If yours is 
the same, using either only "--with-gmp-build=../gmp-4.2.2" should work, 
or "--with-gmp-lib=../gmp-4.2.2/.libs  --with-gmp-include=../gmp-4.2.2" 
(which is exactly what --with-gmp-build does internally).
