I installed GMP-4.3.1 without problem on my Mandriva 2009  machine . I then wanted to install MPFR 2.4.1 and configure complained it had unequal gmp.h and libgmp versions. I have done a reboot and inspection and the old libgmp is not changed .

Is this a bug . MPFR will not let me go any further until I resolve this
