Good morning,


I just came across a brief manual for libgcrypt:


It says the installation directory will be /usr/share/doc/libgcrypt-1.4.5 but i can't see anything but a README file in there...


Also, checked the collectd build output and looks like it was aboe to find libgcrypt and therefore I am going to try one more thing before I completely give up on this...


So can someone please let me know how I can dynamically link collectd's with libgcrypt?


Thanks in advance,
