mpc: Arithmetic of complex numbers with arbitrarily high precision and correct rounding

Description

From http://www.multiprecision.org/mpc: GNU MPC is a C library for the arithmetic of complex numbers with arbitrarily high precision and correct rounding of the result. It extends the principles of the IEEE-754 standard for fixed precision real floating point numbers to complex numbers, providing well-defined semantics for every operation. At the same time, speed of operation at high precision is a major design goal.
