My view is: put in the installation documentation the requirement for at

Then, if there is no new MPFR release for which configure checks can be
made by the time 4.3 branches, consider workarounds.

Sounds fine, agreed.

That sounds good to me as well. I do not think that we need to do anything at configure-time, so long as we document the patch in our installation requirements. That's not to say detecting the problem at configure-time isn't a good thing, but I don't think it's a necessary thing.
