If I remember @jperkin correctly, the bulk builds are done on Illumos,
which probably does have a different (i.e. newer) userland compared to

I don't think that a mix of packages using native and pkgsrc versions of
gmp and mpfr is a good idea, so I will keep
PREFER_PKGSRC = gmp mpfr
anyway and not try to solve this on a per-package level. And if the
per-package solution depends on the exact derivative of Solaris, I think
this will get way to complicated.
