Ok great; I was thinking about that myself. Do you plan to replace  
the existing
flags with the above (for only 4.2 and trunk I'd suppose)? This would  
still work
even if GMP or MPFR change their build procedure, etc.

I'll try to figure out exactly what happened with my false positive  
configure test
but yet failed compile.  Still makes me nervous ...
