Ah, I had missed the Solaris DSO checkin -- I only read gnupg-commits
sporadically.  Thanks. :)

The other one was the --module-path option. I did this on a whim
because someone in gnupg-users wanted something like that, but it would
actually help me out, too -- currently I have to hand-edit g10defs.h
for every build, since some modules installed at the site are not
part of the gnupg distribution. (I posted this 6/25 in Message-ID:
<20020625211733.GC28533 at>.)

Actually, I was asked yesterday if G10_LOCALEDIR and GNUPG_DATADIR
could be controlled similarly, from the command line or options file.
If you think this might go in, I'd be willing to prototype the code
(if needed). --module-path could be transformed into a --prefix or
--extensions-prefix or some such thing.

AFS users might find this useful, too. I no longer use AFS, but I retain
great sympathy for the peculiar problems encountered by those who do. :)
