this could be due to GMP built with wrong options.
I have had problems using GPM supplied within carat, until I switched to GMP
supplied by fink (do you use fink? www.finkproject.org).

You'd comment out building Gmp in carat's top makefile, and add
-I/sw/include to the CFLAGS there.
Then everything builds fine.

Anyhow, it's certainly better to have out-of-package-tree installation of
GPM on your system, be it the fink's one or other, for GMP is used by lots
of software around...
