     85As of June 23rd, GHC HQ has exorcised and split out GMP from the runtime 
     86system into the separate 'integer-gmp' package. If you are bootstrapping a 
     87compiler and are going to use integer-gmp for your {{{Integer}}} type, instead of 
     88'integer-simple' which is a pure Haskell equivalent, then you will need to 
     89run {{{configure}}} in {{{libraries/integer-gmp}}} here as well:
