Finding path of GMP and MPFR for gcc upgrade


I'm attempting to update gcc to the latest build. I've downloaded and extracted the source to /tmp/gcc-4.3.0 and created a directory /tmp/gcc430 When I run /tmp/gcc-4.3.0/configure I get the following output
Code:
[root@localhost gcc430]# /tmp/gcc-4.3.0/configure

configure: error: Building GCC requires GMP 4.1+ and MPFR 2.3.0+.
Try the --with-gmp and/or --with-mpfr options to specify their locations.
Copies of these libraries' source code can be found at their respective
hosting sites as well as at ftp://gcc.gnu.org/pub/gcc/infrastructure/.
See also http://gcc.gnu.org/install/prerequisites.html for additional info.
If you obtained GMP and/or MPFR from a vendor distribution package, make
sure that you have installed both the libraries and the header files.
They may be located in separate packages.
I think I verified them as installed with rpm

Code:
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -q mpfr
mpfr-2.3.0-1.fc8
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -q gmp
gmp-4.2.2-4.fc8
But I need to know where they are installed so I can pass that to the configure command. Any suggestions are where they are or how to find out?

Thanks,

Drew

I found the solution, I needed to install the development packages so the headers would be available.
Code:
[drew@localhost ~]$ rpm -qa | grep "gpm\|mpfr"
mpfr-devel-2.3.0-1.fc8
mpfr-2.3.0-1.fc8
gpm-1.20.1-89.fc8
gpm-devel-1.20.1-89.fc8
