bug report (?)

I am submitting this to both gmp and mpfr, as I am not sure where the
culprit of this bug really is.  I have downloaded the latest gmp (6.0.0a --
there wasn't a 6.0.0 option) and have successfully built it.  However, when
I attempted to compile mpfr with the latest gmp, doing both an internal
build (--with-gmp-build) and gmp directory flags (--with-gmp-dir), during
the configure step, I received an error

configure: error: GMP_NUMB_BITS is incorrect.
You probably need to change some of the GMP or MPFR compile options.

I have used both the gcc-4.7.3 compiler and the clang compiler and both
give this error when configuring mpfr.

mpfr configures fine with the older version of gmp (5.1.2).

I am using no additional configure flags, apart from using the gcc-4.7.3
