Actually this problem (recent libgmp not found) is probably not
specific to MPFR: user programs based on GMP may have the same
problem. The user probably forgot to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH as told
when installing GMP (and for those who prefer run paths, see the
documentation of the compiler and/or linker).
