Do you mean that you're wanting to build gmp from some location other than
the top-level gmp source directory ?
Ought that be supported ? In the gmp docs that I've looked at I see mention
only of './configure' - no mention of being able to do

BTW, I did find that '<ABS_DIR>/configure' works fine - but only if
<ABS_DIR> (which, obviously, is the top-level gmp source directory) is the
current working dir.
