OK, see here:
Log file does contain above line.

Both files (ERR.config & ERR.make) are empty. Log file contains magic
line too.

GnuPG installs into /usr/local/bin.

Thanks, this helps.
I installed bzip2-1.0.3.tar.gz and after this command "./configure"
found bzlib.h without additional options. Now after compiling "gpg
--version" displays:

gpg (GnuPG) 1.4.2
Compression: Uncompressed, ZIP, ZLIB, BZIP2

Thanks to everyone!
