I used the following for my Master's thesis:

        author = {Torbjörn Granlund et al.},
        title = "{GNU} Multiple Precision Arithmetic Library 4.1.2",
        month = {December},
        year = 2002,
        note = "\url{}"

I asked Torbjörn for an official citation, but he didn't have one; the
one I invented passed his proofreading of the thesis, so it's probably
sufficienly correct (unless other GMP maintainers disagree).
