Actually, I don't care how PPL test for PPL. It happens that the GMP API has
changed between 4.x.x and 5.x.x, and thus PPL mis-reports the API breakage
as being due to a too old GMP. Right, it is not the version number that PPL
checks, but the error message reported is nonetheless mis-leading.

And yes, reverting to using GMP 4.3.2 is a correct workaround.
Beside, from crosstool-NG point of view, GMP 5.0.1 is marked EXPERIMENTAL.

Anyway, thanks for your patch! I'll add it shortly! :-)

Regards,
Yann E. MORIN.
