Thank You Werner for Your attention

I kept investigating, and found out that libgcrypt by default is using  
some assembler modules.

configuring libgcrypt with "--disable-asm" solved the problem ( at  
least in my case )
sorry for posting to the wrong list,

Maybe pointing this out in the gnupg README might help others avoid  
this issue
The gnupg README says,for the required packages, to run "./configure;  
make; make install"

Bye for now
