The signatures:

Changes from version 3.0.0 to version 3.0.1:
- Bug fixes (see <> or ChangeLog file).
  Note: The mpfr_subnormalize implementation up to MPFR 3.0.0 did not change
  the flags. In particular, it did not follow the generic rule concerning
  the inexact flag (and no special behavior was specified). The case of the
  underflow flag was more a lack of specification.

Please send success and failure reports with "./config.guess" output
to <mpfr at>.

If no problems are found, GNU MPFR 3.0.1 should be released
around 2011-03-30.
