Hello Werner,
I've noticed from the changelog that:
 * The automatic thread library detection has finally been removed.
   From now on, only linking explicitely to libgcrypt, libgcrypt-pth
   or libgcrypt-pthread is supported.

Doesn't this break libraries like gnutls? There is no way for
gnutls to know a priori which libraries an application would
use. Should the applications that use gnutls deal with libgcrypt
linking directly? Is there any easy way to do the linking with
the proper library, using m4 macro or something?
