Subject: [FD] over 2000 packages depend on abort()ing libgmp

ping world

libgmp is library about big numbers.

it is not a library for very big numbers, because
if libgmp meets a very big number, it calls abort()
and coredumps.

2442 packages depend on libgmp on ubuntu20.

guest3@...ntu20:~/prim$ apt-cache rdepends libgmp10 | wc -l
