Note that this test was really buggy in MPFR 2.2.0. I fixed it in
MPFR 2.2.1, but this is still a warning, since I'm not sure that
it will work with any compiler on Earth.

GMP doesn't provide a gmp-config (in its official archive). But if
you want to use /usr/lib before /usr/local/lib for some libraries,
and /usr/local/lib before /usr/lib for GMP, I don't know how to tell
the compiler/linker to do that (in a portable way). So, a gmp-config
would probably be useless.
