I haven't been able to build libgcrypt from CVS for a while. The
problem appear to be in the following snippet:
# Setup assembler stuff.
AC_MSG_CHECKING(for mpi assembler functions)
if test -f $srcdir/mpi/config.links ; then
The last line passes a variable to AC_CONFIG_LINKS, it seems automake
expect a proper filename there.
This is with autoconf 2.59 and automake 1.8 beta. I understand that
these tools are too recent, and downloading the tar files work fine
for me, so I don't really need this fixed (otherwise I would have
debugged this further). But just to let you know.

You can now run "./configure --enable-maintainer-mode" and then "make".
