There is an obvious reason why GNU would adopt MPC rather than PARI: MPC is designed exclusively as an extension of GNU MP and GNU MPFR, whereas PARI has its own multiprecision arithmetic implementation (although it can optionally use GMP). It makes sense for GNU to centralize on a single MP library.
