libgmp.a (and /usr/lib/ if you have one), does it work?  You only need these files if you intend to build any software which depends on having GMP version 2, which is unlikely since GMP 3 is source-compatible with GMP 2.

Yes, that works. Still I would opt for the renaming to avoid this
problem in the future. It really depends on the setup of the system.
Another question: should packages like gtk+hs not add themselves to
package.conf, so that gtkhs-config is not needed? Or is this method
not yet proven.
