No, David. The only configure options I used are "--prefix" and "--with-
libcurl". The only one difference between the configure commmand line 
reported on my web page and the one I actually used is in the CFLAGS part, 
where I used, e.g., "-march=athlon-xp" and some other optimizations. And 
exec-path is not in my gpg.conf (I checked, to be double sure).

I have only modified, like reported on my web page, the lines in the 
"configure" script where the directories are defined (lines 23881-23885):
#define G10_LOCALEDIR     "c:\\\\programmi\\\\gnupg\\\\locale"
#define GNUPG_LIBDIR      "c:\\\\programmi\\\\gnupg"
#define GNUPG_LIBEXECDIR  "c:\\\\programmi\\\\gnupg"
#define GNUPG_DATADIR     "c:\\\\programmi\\\\gnupg"
#define GNUPG_HOMEDIR     "h:\\\\gnupg"

Yes, I can. I think it is better I rebuild it with "-g" and without 
optimizations, right? I'll do it tomorrow as soon as I can.
