I probably should not be commenting on this but I cannot resist.

I could not agree with you more Torbjorn, you are doing a service to all
both by GMP and your attitude.

  According to my initial research, GMP is a popular applications used

  If interested in Sun's program for GMP, please contact me for a more
  detailed explanation of the program.

Please tell us what Sun is up to.  A fork, like Intel's MKL?

Whatever Sun might be up to, I continue to develop the official GNU
GMP in my pace and as time permits.  I usually accept good patches
from individuals, if it is something not already in the GMP
development cvs.  I do not usually accept non-trivial vendor specific
patches, in particular not from enterprises.  This might sound
stubborn, but I really will not work for free, until I get free food,
free housing, free travel, free computers, and free beer.
