I guess Paul wants to compile mpfr in a situation where mini-gmp is used
as an argument to --with-gmp (or whatever this flag may be named for
mpfr). The mpfr code has to detect that.

I guess you can find ways to do this detection, but merely proposing

does not seem very appropriate to me. How would one distinguish between
mini-gmp and random-dude-mp (assuming the latter has some pretense of
being gmp-compatible) ?
