Building libgpg-error/libgcrypt/libtasn1/gnutls/gsasl without autoconf on uClinux

Hi all,

Sometimes it can be useful to build things without the autoconf
./configure machinery, and just use a simple and hand-maintained
makefile and config.h.  This is needed to build things in older uClinux

I wrote some instructions on how to achieve this, see:

The makefile/config.h aren't specific to uClinux, so if you for some
reason need to build these projects in some other environment, without
autoconf, the files may be useful.

Note that instructions for how to get these projects to work under a
modern uClinux (which supports the autoconf-machinery) is still
available, and is the preferred way to build under uClinux, see:
