Thanks for the reply.

The --disable-asm fails to help MAKE complete, same errors result. I've read
a report where the IBM C compiler does not encounter these errors. I will
try an earlier version of GCC++/GCC.

A quick search on the error message suggests that passing "--disable- asm"
to ./configure might help.  It's not clear whether this is an actual problem
with the inline assembly code within libgcryppt, or a result of a GCC
bug...if the latter, it's also possible that using a newer or different
version of the compiler itself might be helpful.
