To expand upon this: libgmp makes sure not to create TEXTRELs if
compiling for PIC. The function in question uses the m4 macro LEA, which
picks the correct code for either situation. Using libgmp.a explicitly
here means you told the code it would be running statically compiled and
then used it for dynamic compilation, anyway.
