I'm not entirely sure when this is useful. I think we should encourage
users of mini-gmp to bundle mini-gmp with their program. Then support
for multiple versions of mini-gmp doesn't seem very important.

But I may be missing some use cases, and I don't object to adding some
kind of version number or timestamp to mini-gmp.h.

Sounds a bit overkill to me. But maybe it makes sense to do it similarly
to, e.g., config.guess and texinfo.tex, which seems to have a timestamp
updated for each edit.
