I don't think this is a bug at all. Probably just a change from 4.3.1 to
5.0.1 in the gmp.h file.
Someone pointed out that while this is still present :
#define GMP_LIMB_BITS 64
It looks like this left on the last train for the coast :
#define __GMP_BITS_PER_MP_LIMB 64
Is this intentional ?
Yes, this was an intentional change.
I understand that some users depend on GMP internals, such as
BITS_PER_MP_LIMB or __GMP_BITS_PER_MP_LIMB, but then they will have to
be prepared to cope with incompatibilities between GMP releases.
