Don't try to edit Makefiles generated by configure. You will fail if you
haven't experience in using autoconf/automake.
Use these options to build GnuPG if you have problems:
./configure --with-included-zlib --with-included-gettext
The options "--with-included-zlib" requests the usage of the zlib included
in the GnuPG distribution. Zlib is a library used for compressing and
decompressing data. "--with-included-gettext" requests the usage of the
included library for internationalization.

I suggest to use the included versions of gettext and zlib. Their are some
versions of these libraries widly used which have some minor problems
especially contained in older distributions.
