My question is that it does not find MPFR!
I am sorry, I did not read through the message before sending it.
What my question is: Why does the GCC compilation brake?
I am in 'make' process and it says it does not find libmpfr!

My TAR Version:

tar (GNU tar) 1.26

I left out the license part, because it is in german and (as I see) not relevant.

I will go to vacation next week, but will be happy about an answer in my letterbox when I get back.

Thanks in advance,
