No, tghere is no notion of infinity in GMP.
As a matter of fact, there is no overflow detection. In practice,
one should normally get a memory allocation error, not numerical
overflow in such situations.
But it is not safe to approach the limit of 2^32-1 bits on a 32-bit
machine. One might get garbage results.
