I suspect we'll have to find a way to either include GMP or at the least
link against it.  One more dependency in the build process.  Sigh.

At least as a first cut, configuring  could test for a suitable
installed GMP library and avoid enabling g95 if no suitable GMP
library is found.  I believe we do similar things with GNAT since
it needs GNAT to build.

[ I suspect asking the g95 folks to rewrite their code to avoid GMP
  probably isn't going to be well received :-) ]
