  1) MPFR will substitute MPF in future, isn't it ?
     When will this happen ?
This has been a stated goal of the mpfr team, but it is not likely
to happen within the foreseeable future.

  2) Are GMP authors interested in win32 makefiles ?
     I created some bakefiles (XML-like project files for
     bakefile: which are
     able to generate makefiles for various win32 compilers:
     borland, msvc, mingw, watcom....
     The build system I've created does not require any change
     in the code: it's a small win32 directory to add to the 
     main GMP folder which contains the bakefiles
     (from which the makefiles can be re-generated) and
     the generated makefiles ready to be run...
     I think that adding these files to the official distribution
     could be very interesting since it would allow a wider range of
     users to take advantage of GMP.

I don't want to maintain another set of makefiles,
and for a platform which I don't use.  Sorry.
