I have commited that changes but I changed the value of the
GCRY_MD_MD4 macro.  Thanks.

Agreed.  It has been removed from GnuPG so we will probably also
remove it form libgcrypt.  There is no real point in having loadable
algorithms, given that the text is usually small and the large tables
some algorithms use are anywat paged in on demand.
