I am not sure it would make much sense for a distribution to ship a 
library for a different ABI. Whatever ABI they choose, they will make it 
the default and compile everything for it. And if there are multiple ABIs, 
the reverse (what we already have in debian) where changing the ABI (with 
-m32 for instance) makes the compiler include a different gmp.h file is 
more logical than having the gmp.h file tell you: "oh, I guess you must 
have used -m32 or I wouldn't have been included" ;-)
