Did you install it from sources or did you install your distribution's
binary package? You should have done the later one... Did you also
install the matching developer package? Libraries are always split into
at least two packages: the binary package (containing the library) and
the developer package (containing the header files and most probably
also a statically linkable version of the library).

For me (using Debian), these libgcrypto packages exist:

jbglaw at min:~$ apt-cache search 'libgcry*'|grep libgcry
libgcrypt-dev - LGPL Crypto library - development files
libgcrypt-doc - LGPL Crypto library - documentation
libgcrypt1 - LGPL Crypto library - runtime library

...and to compile something that uses libgcrypto I would need to install
libgcrypt1 and libgcrypt-dev...
