Hmmm. you should first make sure that gpg-error-config is found by the
configure script.  Look at config.log to see why it was not found and
try to fix that. 

GPG_ERROR_CONFIG=~/gnupg-1.9/bin/gpg-error-config ./configure ....

might be the easiest way to accomplish that.

I am currently doing some API changes for libksba, after that a new
gnupg 1.9 will be released.  Wen have fixed a couple minor glitches in
the last weeks, so there is a chance that a new version will better
build out of the box.

For gnupg 1.9, you also need the current libksba from CVS.
