No, it doesn't say that I *must* set ABI.
In https://gmplib.org/manual/Build-Options it says
"By default GMP chooses the best ABI available, but a particular ABI can be
In https://gmplib.org/manual/ABI-and-ISA it says
"By default GMP chooses the best ABI available for a given system, and this
generally gives significantly greater speed. But an ABI can be chosen
This is good. For consistency with other GNU packages, which accept CC,
CFLAGS, CPPFLAGS, and LDFLAGS variables at configure time  and deduce
as much configuration details from these.
I've built gmp-6.2.0 on many platforms, and on most of them setting ABI
was not necessary, if I set CC appropriately like I do for the other GNU
