I am having major problems compiling 1.0.7 of gpg, the compilation works
fine the make check also works fine
but make install gives me grief. The make files are complicated enough that
I failed to hack my way through.
Also I modified install to swap its arguments, but it seems there are cases
that it does not apply.
 I have to add that during this I am root, do not run out of space, and gcc
and binutils are installed in /usr/local/bin also gnumake is installed too.
Here is the problem when I took the defaults of configure, which is install
to /usr/local

  /bin/install -c rndlinux /usr/local/lib/gnupg/rndlinux
cp: /usr/local/lib/gnupg/rndlinux: is a directory
************  MY comments **********************
notice it should be /bin/install -c /usr/local/lib/rndlinux rndlinux

I tried to put a wrapper around real install but no go:-(

*****************  End of my comments *************************
install: cp /usr/local/lib/gnupg/rndlinux rndlinux/rndlinux failed
  /bin/install -c rndegd /usr/local/lib/gnupg/rndegd
cp: /usr/local/lib/gnupg/rndegd: is a directory
