Copr dependency rebuild with circular dependencies

Hi all. Apologies for cross-posting, but I am running out of ideas.

Suppose one updates libmpfr in a copr repository, which bumps the
soname. Both GCC and libmpc depend on libmpfr, and so must be rebuilt,
but neither GCC nor libmpc can be rebuilt without an existing libmpc,
which, in turn, depends on the old soname version of the recently
updated libmpfr. Can somebody please advise the best way to go in cases
like these?

Is a copr mass rebuild even the right solution for this, or should one
really be using a side tag in koji?

Self Introduction: James Paul Turner

Good day all.

I write to introduce myself to the wider Fedora devel community. Since
I have a bit of a vested interest in keeping the MPFR package going
strong, and would like to volunteer myself as a package maintainer.

My name is James, and I am am studying numerical methods as my PhD
thesis at the University of Sussex, UK. I am a Fedora user, C, C++ and
Python developer and author of an open source range analysis library
(MPFA; <a href="https://github.com/jamesturner246/mpfa" title="https://github.com/jamesturner246/mpfa">https://github.com/jamesturner246/mpfa</a>), which makes heavy use
of MPFR.
