Could it possible to get a version of gmp compiled with --enable-mpfr
... or even better libmpfr 2.0.3 compiled and packaged seperately,
though it has a requirement to be built along with libgmp (The two
projects teams have split, gmp 4.x is distributed with the two year old
mpfr 2.0.1.  The next major release of gmp will not include mpfr at

I have compiled and installed it on my own without difficulty.  

My main reason for requesting this is that GFortran 95, which will come
with upcoming GCC 4.0, requires libmpfr to build.  Furthermore, the
main GCC developers have been receptive to the proposal that all of GCC
4.1 be modified to use libmpfr for its internal math optimiziations
instead of its homegrown routines.
