no need to compile a tuned libgmp under Linux

Dear group,

with "version don't know" (must have been 5.2 - 7.x) it worked to 
replace the delivered with a self-compiled and tuned 
own version. Usually this gave 5-8% speedup in some numeric functions.

  I tried with a newly generated gcc-4.6 and it failed though "make 
check" in gmp as in the dependent libs mpfr and mpc succeeded.

Just typed this to prevent you from unnecessary effort.


P.S.: Nice you're again here, Steven. I've been (a bit) in sorrow.
