We generally don't worry about warnings in configure or make unless the 
final installation breaks.  My log for the interanl tests for gmp are:

All 9 tests passed
All 43 tests passed
All 62 tests passed
All 14 tests passed
All 27 tests passed
All 7 tests passed
All 3 tests passed
All 19 tests passed

And at the bottom, a single 184.

So it looks like all 184 tests passed for me.
