As already noted the mpfr seems to be baloney. That should
  get fixed. (It should look roughly like the gmp one.)
If the gmp one still isn't working, I guess the first question is what
  gmp.h it's finding, what version of gmp it thinks that is, and why it
  thinks that's suitable for use.
What are IS_BUILTIN.gmp, BUILTIN_VERSION.gmp, and H_GMP getting set
  to? Also, am I correct in thinking USE_BUILTIN.gmp is coming out

I'm not sure if the solution was that simple all the time, or if anything changed in the meantime:


BUILDLINK_API_DEPENDS.gmp+=     gmp>=5.0

to gnutls's Makefile fixes the problem. The native gmp is

$ bmake show-var VARNAME=BUILTIN_VERSION.gmp

The fix above is stolen from security/nettle, which already worked in the past.

In the original PR 52244 I had trouble building print/luatex because of mpfr. The same there:

$ bmake show-var VARNAME=BUILTIN_VERSION.mpfr

but pkgsrc provides version 4.0.1. luatex includes mpfr without requesting a minimal version.

I think the overall fix would be to check all packages depending on gmp and mpfr and adding appropriate BUILDLINK_API_DEPENDS - whatever the minimal version might be in any case. Another fix might be to make SunOS always use pkgsrc's versions and never ever use the builtins.
