error while loading shared libraries: libgmp.so.3: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64

The situation is very simple.

The binary you are downloading has been compiled on a 32-bit system and thus requires 32-bit libraries. You can probably try installing:

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

and see if this will resolve it but it is unlikely. You should try to see if the Ubuntu Repositories have Hume interpreter tested for this distribution save that you may have to install VirtualBox likely with RedHat to make this work.
