Afaiui it would be perfectly fine to /build/ GPLv2 code against older
GMP as long as we distribute the resulting binary only together with
the newer GMP binary. (The binary will often be identical, no matter
whether it is built against gmp 5.3 or 6).

Also I am reluctant with manually overriding gmp shlibs. How about
simply adding
Breaks: libgmp10 (<< 2:6)
to the libgnutls28 binary package?

Due to size of the transition it is a little bit difficult, see
(Please keep this thread on d-d, -release is not a discussion list.)

I have done some test-builds and reported most of the issues I
found[1]. Some important library packages have already switched (cups,
curl), I guess the next one would be neon or gnome-vfs.
