I just did a test with the current 2.0 code on an IA64 under Debian.  I
had to install in my home directory and needed to build my own libpth
(2.0.7 plus ia64 patch).

The first test failed at decrypt.tyst and several others.  Manual
testing again worked then.  I remove the gnupg tree and build it again
and all tests succeeded.  The only difference is that during the first
build I had not set LD_LIBRARY_PATH and thus the "make" in tests failed.
I set LD_LIBRARY_PATH, ran "make" and "make check" again and it failed
as described.  I also did a "make distclean" and build again, with full
success.  dmesg showed several hardware errors and lost page write
errors on that machine thus this might have been the problem.

gcc 4.4.5

The permissions are just a warning.  The GnuPG home directory should not
be world readable - but for a test this doesn't matter.

> Also, in the output
> 	3DES FAIL: conventional-mdc.test

I have changed that to 

  PASS: decrypt.test
  PASS: decrypt-dsa.test
      > MD5 SHA1 RIPEMD160 SHA256 SHA384 SHA512 SHA224 <
  PASS: sigs.test

Hope this helps.

Thanks for all your tests.
