Re: Announce: MPFR 2.2.1 is released

Hi Kaveh,

Requiring this is a bit of a nuisance. mpfr requires gmp so I had to
go pull and build that only to find:

checking if gmp.h version and libgmp version are the same...
(4.2.1/4.1.4) no

which is a problem because I cannot have /usr/local/lib found before
/usr/lib for
some things, yet for mpfr I have to find gmp in /usr/local/lib first.
The normal
way for this to work is for mpfr to use gmp-config to find out where to
find headers
and libraries. This was not done. I don't have an easy route from here
to there.

Now, what? :( Thanks - Bruce
