Well, sure, but that's a documented part of the gmp build process;

I would have thought that this freedom is precisely the reason folks would 
want these recorded in gmp.h!  No?

To be precise: it's not "another platform" in the sense of copying a sparc 
gmp.h to an amd64 machine, but rather another instance of the same platform.  
This, in my view, is not outside a normal process, either.
