If gmp and binutils are using git, you can use git submodules, I
think. This may also work even if gmp and binutils are not using git.
But I personally have never set up a git repo with submodules.  I do
use one at work though, but that's basically managed by someone else.

Shouldn't be a problem.  Cmucl has one binary file in its tree and
I've not had any problems with it.  Merging is kind of a pain, but I
just end up taking one whole file, which is usually the right thing
for the binary file.
