Hello,

I know I'm jumping in a little bit late here, but I'm having trouble 
spotting where this discussion took place and I'd appreciate a cluebat.

I'm just curious, what was the rationale behind building gmp and mpfr in 
  different manners within the same book? To be more specific, why let 
GCC build them internally for its own use on GCC pass1 and then build 
them separately for the other two passes of GCC?

Thanks,
