is there a portable way for an application using GMP's
mpz_t (seen as a collection of bits) to know the maximum
number of bits a mpz_t can handle?
I am afraid I don't understand your question.
An mpz_t allocates more memory as the value "needs more bits",
which makes the available swap space and setrlimit-style
resource caps the the only limits.
