Oh, excellent! I was compiling the old version because I was attempting to
compile GCC 4.9.0, and couldn't get it to find my current version of gmp
(nor mpfr nor mpc). Therefore, I downloaded the version extant on gcc's
website, just to make sure that everything would work.

Sorry to have wasted your time, and thanks for the response!
