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.

Of course, those markers should be removed, if the patch goes in.
