  On my Mac OS X machine, I've upgraded GMP from 4.2.3 to 4.2.4, didn't
  recompile PARI/GP (this should not be needed), and I now get errors:

I have no idea what you're doing here.  What is input, what is output?
What does the input and output mean?

  If the GMP ABI hasn't changed, there should be no differences.

I suppose you need to debug this then, if you think something is not as
it should.
