I encoutered this the other day when compiling up gcc 4.3.2 on Centos 4 
in a way that I hadn't encountered before.
I investigated the config.log file and determined that it couldn't find 
the libmpfr shared library. I exported LD_LIBRARY_PATH to contain 
/usr/local/lib and that solved the problem.

However it did seem odd to me, and result is that gcc neds to have 
LD_LIBRARY_PATH set to include /usr/local/lib in order to run, rather 
than having the full path to libmpfr coded in it. This is in fact 
causing us issues with getting the environment set when executing over 
ssh etc.
So suplemental question is whether this has just patched a more 
underlying problem.
