Probably the latter. Nettle yields two libraries, libnettle and
libhogweed. Libnettle has the symetric cyphers and hashes, and doesn't
depend on libgmp. Libhogweed has the public-key cyphers and does
depend on gmp.

It sounds like nettle[gmp] is the libnettle and libhogweed version.

dnsmasq needs both libnettle and libhogweed, and therefore also libgmp.

Cheers,


Simon.
