Reviving the discussion, as we’ve been discussing this at the GHM, and
some people would really like to see it happen.  :-)

Do you still have the patch around?

The problem is that there’s a public API dealing with mpz_t:

  SCM_API void scm_to_mpz (SCM x, mpz_t rop);
  SCM_API SCM  scm_from_mpz (mpz_t rop);

So, when mini-gmp is used, a <gmp.h> header should be installed as well,
say under <libguile/mini-gmp.h>.  WDYT?

I don’t think there’s a problem, because only mpz_t objects appear in
the API, and they’re pointers.

So apparently you eventually added them, thanks!
