I am not entirely sure about your question, but I assume you are
asking what padding mechanisms Libgcrypt provides in respect to
symmetric block ciphers. The answer is: none; you have to do your
padding yourself. Note that if you are dealing with data, whose size
is larger than a single block size, you can use CTS (cipher text
stealing) instead of padding.
