There are two "simple" ways, both available in the archive of
Contributed GP scripts,


Specifically, item #2 (by Henri Cohen):


and #3 (by Tim Dokchitser)

Pascal Molin, a student of mine, is working on a more general
implementation of Dokchitser's script (with new ideas of his, as well as
from Booker, Rubinstein, and others), which will be directly available
in the PARI/GP package.

If you devise specific improvements to script #2 above, you may send
patches to me. (Script #3 is maintained directly by Tim Dokchitser.)
