No I have not seen that error, but from what I can puzzle out.....

If we are talking chapter 05

gmp is installed in the gcc step

If we are talking chapter 06

gmp.h is defined in the gmp-5.0.2 package, which should have been 
installed just before gcc

So it looks like you have missed something in you build.
