Hi everyone!

In Fedora Extras for Fedora Core 4 Development we currently experience
a build problem with gnupg 1.9.15 on x86_64 (previously on powerpc),
which is not reproducible on i386:

FAIL: sm-sign+verify
PASS: sm-verify
1 of 2 tests failed
Please report to gnupg-devel at

Running the test suite in verbose mode gives:

sending `VERIFY'
expecting OK

gpgsm: some signal caught ... exiting

I haven't tried yet whether patching the code to use strsignal()
instead of the current direct sys_siglist[] access will give a hint
instead of the "some signal" catch-all.

A complete build log can be found here:
