Fix compilation with newer versions of libssl #18

It is already well known that compiling using the libssl-dev from the Debian 9 repositories is not working, with BIGNUM errors, etc. A workaround is to use libssl1.0-dev instead.
Now, in Debian Buster (testing), libssl1.0-dev is no longer in the repositories (Package 'libssl1.0-dev' has no installation candidate) so it will really be a pain to compile in recent Linuxes.

I was thinking about this recently. The fix is to eliminate BIGNUM entirely and switch to GMP. I don't think it will be too difficult. I will look into this.

I think that finishing this GMP port would be a prerequisite for #20 .
So far I did not encounter any issue with this GMP code so it should be good.
Now we need to update the build system.
