Yes, the pointers __gmp_allocate_function etc should be used.
I fixed the manual a while ago to get those allocate_function etc out
of the index, but they're still in the custom memory section to show
what an application needs to provide.

If an application has set the functions then presumably it knows what
they are :-).
Perhaps an mp_get_memory_functions would be worthwhile though.

You can pass NULL to get that.
