  But in the case of GMP all this is only there to optionally build

  caused in the past and still does, I start to think that it would
  be wise to split the GMP configure script in two parts:
  one for the library and test suite, and separate configure script
  for the demo programs.
I am not aware of any problems except for the ones reported on relation
to GCC in the last few weeks.  Our very broad internal testing has never
struck any lex problem.

I don't know which implications splitting out a new configure.ac into
the GMP demos directory will have.  And I'm afraid I don't have time to
work on this project.
