This is bogus, what version of autoconf are you using?
My autoconf generates the following lines in configure (around line 9428,
close to the end of the file):

           sed 's,\.[^.]* ,.lo ,g;s,\.[^.]*$,.lo,'`

As you can see, the @&t@ was expanded to nothing, this is the Quadrigraph
feature to prevent autoconf from complaining about the use of LIBOBJS.

Maybe we need to stricten the dependency on autoconf.  I use autoconf 2.53.

Mmmh.  This looks like gpg is failing.  On my system it complains about
unsafe permissions on the directory and configuration files, but continues
anyway.  What is your gpg configuration?

Or maybe it is just a shell incompatibility in mkdemodirs.  Can you enter
the tests/gpg directory and try

srcdir=. ./mkdemodirs

And see if that fails?

Please read the README.
