I was just trying to compile libgcrypt 1.10.2 on my Mac

libgcrypt ➤ uname -a
Darwin paag-MacBookAir 21.6.0 Darwin Kernel Version 21.6.0: Thu Mar  9 20:08:59 PST 2023; root:xnu-8020.240.18.700.8~1/RELEASE_X86_64 x86_64

And I got the following error:

/bin/sh ../libtool  --tag=CC   --mode=compile gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I..  -I../src -I../src -I/usr/local/include -I/usr/local/include -arch x86_64 -Os -fno-delete-null-pointer-checks -Wall -MT rndgetentropy.lo -MD -MP -MF .deps/rndgetentropy.Tpo -c -o rndgetentropy.lo rndgetentropy.c

rndgetentropy.c:98:21: error: implicit declaration of function 'getrandom' is invalid in C99 [-Werror,-Wimplicit-function-declaration]
              ret = getrandom (buffer, nbytes, GRND_RANDOM);
rndgetentropy.c:98:48: error: use of undeclared identifier 'GRND_RANDOM'
              ret = getrandom (buffer, nbytes, GRND_RANDOM);
2 errors generated.

This all in my effort to get gnupg 2.4.1 running from the tarballs in <>

Thanks for any help, /PA
