  Ah, limbs (including nails) are strictly larger than long if and only

I can imagine a broken situation that violates this, where
_LONG_LONG_LIMB is defined for an ABI where 'long' and 'long long' are
the same size.  I *think* that GMP's configure will detect and reject
that; if not, it is a configure bug that we will fix.
