This is a problem.  Sooner or later another application will require
libgpg-error and than we get into the problem of duplicate symbols or
- if we take them out of the linker's scope - that other application
won't be able to display proper i18n'd messages or you will see a
translation or no translation depending on where the error gets

Adding libgpg-error as an independent part to libgcrypt would be
possibe but be a headache for maintenance.
