  Even bashes GMP for this.
  Probably related to __need_size_t?
Then the GCC project deserves to be chastised.

They urge people into using a 4 year old GMP release.  This is done in
many places, as well as enforced by the 'prerequisites' script.

Then they find an incompatibility with their latest and greatest
(pre-)release and bashes GMP.  They do in lieu of reporting the
perceived problem to us.

(Of course, our reply would have been to stop using long outdated GMP

This is not the behaviour I would expect from another Free Software

Perhaps we can make them rephrase "A workaround until libraries get
updated ..." to the more appropriate "A workaround until we in the GCC
project stops urging people to use severely outdated GMP releases ..."
