Unless/until the top-level configury does a "staged install", we'll be
depending on the build directory structure of these libraries. We don't
control that, and we know they change from time to time. So, it sounds
like we'll be right back to the switches we've just agreed to remove
(e.g., --with-gmp-dir). So, I think this is a bad idea.
Actually I thought that --with-gmp-dir was still in ? (Or maybe I
missed a post about it being removed in the future).
I agree that the patch I wrote is dependent upon the layout of the gmp
and mpfr build directories. But at least this version of the patch will
not cause any problems for users who do not have either the gmp or mpfr
sources installed in their source tree. So the only people who would be
affected by a change in the gmp or mpfr build layout would be people who
are using an integrated and up-to-date source tree, and I expect that
they would be very quick to detect any fix any such layout problems.

Of course, those markers should be removed, if the patch goes in.
Doh! Of course. (Cut and paste error, sorry).
