Here-to-fore, I've been happy with whatever was installed with my

(details: the primary library version was the same, but some libs in
/usr/local/lib were preserved over a re-install and they referenced
libimf which was now gone.) Anyway, it was an ugly nuisance.
I've now "rm -f"-ed all those broken .so-s.

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib seems to work....Thanks. Maybe now
that the
libimf referencing libs are gone, I can go back and re-order the library
search again.
Anyway, the whole deal about gmp-config is that mpfr should be doing the
of --with-gmp=`gmp-config --libdir` so that you *don't* have the
/usr/local headers
and the /usr binary. (a suggestion and a hint to Vincent.) Except I just
gmp-config doesn't exist. Or mpfr-config. *sigh*. Never mind, I guess.

All this is for an inclhack.def patch:

fix = {
hackname = glibc_calloc;
files = bits/string2.h;
select = ' calloc \(1, 1\)';
c-fix = format;
c-fix-arg = ' calloc ((size_t)1, (size_t)1)';
test-text = <<- _EOTest_
char * pz = (char *) calloc (1, 1);

Thank you - Bruce
