Because I'm new to OpenBSD, I don't know exactly when. But the diff
was checked in Aprin 18 2003, I think this changed was visible to users
after November 1 2002(OpenBSD 3.2 release date).

Besides, users don't seem to complain even if OpenBSD ports
unconditionally apply the patch, I think future versions of gmp
don't have to include __GLOBAL_OFFSET_TABLE_ definition.
