AFAIK gmp 4.3.0 hasn't been in pkgsrc, it was upgraded from 4.2.4nb1 to
4.3.1.  You can easily go back to older version in CVS by use date tags
(absolute or relative), eg.:

cvs -q up -dP -A -D "3 months ago"

To go back to HEAD, do:

cvs -q up -dP -A

(-A is to clear all sticky flags)

If you explicitly need 4.3.0, easiest is to just change the DISTNAME in
the Makefile, run "make makesum" and rebuild.
