Ah, it seems I misunderstood you, I thought "anything that includes
rsa.h fails to compile, because rsa.h unconditionally includes
<gmp.h>" referred to some other program *using* nettle, not files that
are part of nettle.
If making nettle fails when there's no GMP available, that's
definitely a bug. Please provide error messages, version info etc.
The intended behaviour in this case is to build a nettle library
without any public-key support.
