actually, libgmp-dev is picked intentionally. libgmp10-dev provides
libgmp-dev, so this works fine. The benefit is that when libgmp11-dev is
introduced some time in the future, ghc stays installable.

Having ghc not installable anymore causes problems, as we need ghc to
build the next version of ghc.

Or do you see a problem with using libgmp10-dev that we are not aware
