OK, I'm confused about all this MPFR buisness. The instructions I found
on the Genius website say you have to replace a chunk of the GMP
library with the MPFR library, but is this really necessary?

The GMP homepage ( says, under "Projects using

  * MPFR, an add-on library for floating-point arithmetic. (A version of
this library was included with GMP 4.1.2.)

The Fink package database entry for GMP
( says that there's a
GMP 4.1.2 package available for every recent version of OS X.

So doesn't that mean that if you just install GMP from Fink normally,
you'll get MPFR also?

Also, doesn't that mean that if you install the latest GMP on any
operating system (Linux, *BSD, whatever), you'll still get MPFR?
