    [gdb/build] Handle deprecation of scm_install_gmp_memory_functions
    When building gdb with guile 3.0.8, we run into:
    gdb/guile/guile.c: In function \
      'void gdbscm_initialize(const extension_language_defn*)':
    gdb/guile/guile.c:680:5: error: 'scm_install_gmp_memory_functions' is \
      deprecated [-Werror=deprecated-declarations]
      680 |     scm_install_gmp_memory_functions = 0;
          |     ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    In file included from /usr/include/guile/3.0/libguile.h:128,
                     from gdb/guile/guile-internal.h:30,
                     from gdb/guile/guile.c:36:
    /usr/include/guile/3.0/libguile/deprecated.h:164:20: note: declared here

          |                    ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    The variable has been deprecated because it no longer has any effect.
    Fix this by disabling the specific deprecation warning.
    Also handle upcoming guile versions > 3.0, in which the variable will be
    removed, by limiting the usage of the variable to guile versions <= 3.0.
    This does not break anything.  The variable was merely used to address a
    problem present in guile versions <= v3.0.5.
    Note that we don't limit the usage of the variable to guile versions <= 3.0.5,
    because we want to support f.i. building against 3.0.6 and then using a shared
    lib with 3.0.5.
    Tested on x86_64-linux.
