Think about it for a minute.  What kind of compiler would we be
providing if you had to specifically add -I/usr/include to the command

The question was whether you have installed libgmp-devel.  That's a
separate package from gmp.  You can search for files in packages at:

As to inet_aton not being available, you'd have to inspect the configure
script to see why it thinks it isn't available.  As a wild guess, I'd have
to wonder if you are somehow specifying "gcc -mno-cygwin" on the compile
line but still expecting cygwin header files to be available.
