The framework does not fit it at all, because the binary has not been
built with it.

Conversely, a binary built with (some) frameworks can't do anything with
corresponding dylibs. (We haven't agreed yet, if dylibs or frameworks
should be preferred.)

The full path /opt/local/lib/libgmp.3.dylib is (somehow) stored in the
binary, but libgmp.3.dylib will be found in any other path, too.
Possibly the DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH has to be set for uncommon paths.
