Well, but you forgot to include detailed error inforamtion, like why
libgcrypt-config was not found.  No /usr/local/bin in the PATH is
quite a common problem especially if one builds as root.

Hundreds of other people don't have these problems, so your
environment seems to be a bit uncommon.  If you provide more detailed
info (e.g. config.log) we might be able to help you.

OTOH, I am not too keen helping folks demanding assistance in such a
harsh way .-)
