I’m not sure whether this failure is proper to ::GMP for missing the method, or to M::BI for failing to check that it’s supported, but: Thank you for your time! -Felipe Gasper

The from_bytes() and as_bytes() methods require Math::BigInt::GMP v1.6000 or newer. I'm note sure what is the best way to handle this. The simplest is probably to have a note displayed by Makefile.PL. Another option is to make Math::BigInt die if the backend library does not support a particular method.

- Makefile.PL now displays a message if the backend libraries installed are too old to support the new methods. - The new methods requiring new version of the backend libraries croak() if the required library method can't be found.
