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: http://bakefile.sourceforge.net) 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.
