I think you mean the "cygwin has still gmp-4.1.4-2"

This should be o.k.since its dynamically linked, but the newer one
might/should be faster......  though maybe not noticeably...

If I knew how to package things properly I'd offer a complete cygwin
package, but, I don't have any place to expose it to you all.
But, here is how to build the newest release.

#both  --disable-static and --enable-shared are required .. so is -DDDL_EXPORT

	./configure --disable-static --enable-shared  CPPFLAGS="-DDLL_EXPORT"
	make check
	# All tests passed
	make install

This will create:

# set -prefix=/usr   to stuff the lib into /usr/bin and /usr/lib.

In the meantime I'll read up on package maintenance and maybe adopt
and orphan package.
