    11I think I lean more toward the latter case.  Most people who want to build Sage do not care what GMP implementation they use, so I think it's good enough to use the one they have, if any, and if not pick one for them.  Whereas if someone is explicitly passing `--with-mp=mpir` then the ''really'' want MPIR specifically, and we should not give them something that isn't it.
