It would be easier if you install the final packages (well the symlinks)
int /packages/{include,lib,bin}.  This can be done by using:

  ./configure --prefix=/packages
  make install prefix=/packages/libgcrypt--1.4.1
In your case you need to run configure with something like

  ./configure --bindir=/packages/.bin --libdir=/packages/.lib .....

and quite some more options.  Check out ./configure --help. The make
invocations are still as show above.
