Shouldn't gcc-4 depend on libmpfr4 ?

I've built and installed a new gmp, then updated and built a new mpfr.  It is
now linked to cyggmp-10.dll, but the mpfr library itself is still cygmpfr-4.dll
and gcc links itself to cyggmp-3.dll... classic dependency hell.

Sure.  In this case the library versioning doesn't do any good, however, since
it didn't change even though the result can't be linked.
