This is supposed to be an implementation detail, right? I.e., it should
depend only on if gmp *itself* is compiled with gcc, and work the same
no matter which compiler is used for the application *using* gmp (and
which will be processing the public gmp.h header)?
I admit I don't understand the fine details here.
