That will download the prerequisites into the contrib directory.

You need to run contrib/download_prerequisites i.e. run it in the
parent directory, so the sources are put in the parent directory, not
in the contrib directory.

That won't work, --with-gmp is used to point to an installed set of
headers and libs, not the sources.
