    GMP installation error in linux

    I downloaded gmp libraries and followed these commands.
    PHP Code:
    ./configure 
    Then I got this error :

    configure: error: No usable m4 in $PATH or /usr/5bin (see config.log for reasons).

    what should I do ?

    Look in the config.log for the reasons... and fix them.

    Really... how much hand holding do you need?

    Were you, by chance, trying to install to sbin without the necessary privileges ?
    Also, If you aren't comfortable to install from source, install the appropriate 'devel' files from your Package Manager.

    Use configure arguments to set the correct path, or install the GNU m4 macro processor if thats what you need.
