build GHC binaries against GMP 5

Currently the development and release binaries are built against the legacy GMP 4. Most distributions use GMP 5 by default, including Ubuntu, Debian and Arch Linux. It would be great if GHC binaries were built against GMP 5 to avoid having most users install another version of GMP to use them.
