Is there any particular reason why you won't stick to the documented  
interface presented in the manual?

mpq_cmp_ui is in the manual, _mpq_cmp_ui isn't. If you were to stick  
to the documented interface instead of hunting through the code,  
you'd have avoided these questions.

In case you don't know, the manual is at www.swox.com/gmp/manual/
