Shouldn't gcc-4 depend on libmpfr4 ?

The problem is a hack in gmp's which is incompatible with
newer libtool versions.  As I've been working on 64bit packages, these
are now in Ports git:;a=tree;;a=tree;a=tree

ppl and cloog-ppl should be straight-forward, but for 4.8 we instead
need isl and cloog-isl, and the two cloog's aren't fully
parallel-installable OOTB.  To work around that, I suggest both be built
with --includedir=/usr/include/${NAME}, then we can pass
--with-cloog-include to GCC depending on the version being built.
