As a remainder, the option --enable-slow-config is essential for
platforms with multiple ABIs. That is operating systems such as
Solaris and now also OS X, which allow building applications with 32
or 64-bits pointers and integers. This option works out the
appropriate flags by first configuring the GMP library and then
copying those flags.

I have changed the configuration process so that --enable-slow-config
is much faster. Before, this was done in two steps:
 - configure GMP in a temporary directory
 - grab the flags
 - configure the rest of ECL
 - re-configure GMP.

Now it is done as follows
 - configure GMP in the directory where it is going to be built
 - grab the flags
 - configure the rest of ECL.

Incidentally, in Solaris (and probably in OS X when we upgrade to
MPIR), --enable-slow-config is ALWAYS activated.
