Try adding /home/projects/crypto/Linux/lib64/python to your PYTHONPATH
environment variable. Python works similarly to Java in that it has a
concept of a PYTHONPATH on which it finds it's modules -- Java has the
class path where it finds it's jars.

It must have searched in the standard library paths such as /usr/lib.
That's where I find a lot of libgmp.* files.
