Are you talking about GCC on *any* operating system ... or is this limited
to GCC on windows ?

And, I assume, you think the generic version is good enough on any other OS
where GCC is the compiler.

Aaah ... I'm guessing this applies to gcc-4.x.x, but not gcc-3.x.x.
Are you saying that, if you're using gcc-4.x.x (on any OS), there's not much
gain from building a non-generic build of gmp ? (I note that the gcc version
provided by the MinGW64 project is a 4.x.x build.)
I'm not intending to be antagonistic or prevocative, btw ... it's really
just that I don't fully understand the point that you are making. (And I
accept that this lack of understanding is probably *my* failing, not yours.)
