My view is: put in the installation documentation the requirement for at
least cumulative patch version n. Put a testcase in the GCC testsuite
that shows if your MPFR is too old.
Then, if there is no new MPFR release for which configure checks can be
made by the time 4.3 branches, consider workarounds.
