Nothing in GNUstep uses gmp ... there is some partially written gmp code in
NSDecimal, waiting for someone to complete it ... but it's not used yet.
Certainly gdomap has absolutely nothing to do with gmp ... a port nameserver
has no need of multiple precision arithmetic.

This suggests that the changes were not made to /etc/services correctly ... you
normally get the error when the service name ('gdomap' in this case) doesn't
exist in /etc/services.
