The BSD library this GMP interface tries to be compatible with, is that
still in use?
FreeBSD stll ships a 32-bit version if it:
shell$ nm /usr/lib32/libmp.a | grep ' T'
00000c30 T mp_gcd
00000140 T mp_itom
000008b0 T mp_madd
00000c10 T mp_mcmp
00000270 T mp_mdiv
00000580 T mp_mfree
00000b20 T mp_min
00000a90 T mp_mout
00000180 T mp_move
000008d0 T mp_msqrt
00000820 T mp_msub
00000390 T mp_mtox
00000750 T mp_mult
00000650 T mp_pow
000005a0 T mp_rpow
00000510 T mp_sdiv
000000c0 T mp_xtom
But they have prepended 'mp_' to the old names, so they are not
compatible with the GMP compatibility functions. :-)
