I do not know what MPFR is (something about FP, right?) but I wonder at why
GMP could be needed by a compiler...
Considering the amount of effort Apple is putting into llvm, I think this
is the way to go. I'm not sure whether going with llvm-gcc4 is worth it
although it would get us in bed with llvm faster.
Go Roman! :)
