May I call this a success now?  You did quite some testing over all the
previous releases and AFAICS, this is the first time that it builds on
all platforms.  The Gentoo thing might really be a regression in gentoo.
The question, is: Shall we fix it in gnupg or wait for a fixed Gentoo?

There is a replacement function made up of an macro and an external
module.  There is no configure check for it, but selected using a list
of CPU/OS strings (mpi/config.links).



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
