I just did build attempts for gnupg-1.4.2rc1 in 21 build environments
on that many flavors of Unix.  Of them, 17 succeeded and reported "All
25 tests passed".  Three of the four failures seem to have a common
cause, and the other is specific to one platform:

c89 -E -I.. -I../include -DHAVE_CONFIG_H mpih-mul1.S | grep -v '^#' > _mpih-mul1.s
make: *** [mpih-mul1.o] Error 1

The problem here is that with a .S file, c89 does not run the
preprocessor, so grep fails because it has no input.
