It is a library. The source package is called `mpfi', the binary
package is called `libmpfi-dev' (only a static library is provided).
So with the package name, section (libdevel) and last paragraph of
description this will be fairly obvious it is a library. But I am open
to improvements to the description (maybe the first two paragraphs
could be made shorter, but on first glance I thought the concept of
interval arithmetics was worth explaining).

I chose the mpfi/libmpfi-dev naming convention as was done for mpfr,
see http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=276085.
