MPFR only implements real functions. For complex functions, you might have a
look at MPC, but it does not implement (yet) the Gamma function.

You might also look in the source code of Pari/GP or mpmath, or any software
mentioned in "Other Related Free Software" on No need to reinvent
the wheel!

Anyway, this discussion does not concern GMP any more...
