GMP is LGPL, libstdc++ is GPL+exception, so would this raise any licensing
issues for libstdc++?
Would this be including just a few bits of GMP built for the target (in
addition to building it for the host as required for gfortran unless the
system has a recent enough version) in libstdc++, as a few bits are
included in glibc, rather than linking all C++ programs against libgmp as
well as libstdc++?
