  The question might better be why kara_sqr_n etc are in with mpn_mul_n
  where they're not used, rather than mpn_sqr_n where they are.

I'll reorganize this once the ongoing toom3 rewrite has settled.

Good idea!

Since you're the main configure/make maintainer,
I will wait for you to enhance the build system to accomodate
vector machines with that suggested improvement.  :-)
