Of late I have had problems with libgmp2 and woody-debian. I solved the
problem the first time around by adding a sym link /usr/lib/libgmp2.so ->
/usr/lib/libgmp.so.2.0.2

Yesterday I solved the problem by installing libgmp2-dev because ld was
looking for libgmp.a for some reason when trying to compile hdirect.

Hacks at best. Haven't really looked for whys and wherefores.
