Follow-up on me...I should have been more resilient!
I reconfigured gnupg with the following flags:
--disable-nls --with-included-gettext \
and used gcc version egcs-2.91.66 (egcs-1.1.2 release) rather
than the irix native C compiler.
After I compiled the rsa and idea modules using:
gcc -Wall -O2 -shared -fPIC -o rsa rsa.c
gcc -Wall -O2 -shared -fPIC -o idea idea.c
and lo and behold it now works!
Can someone shed some light on what is going on here?
