On an Apple Macbook Intel Core 2 Duo:

1.  Configured for: Darwin (i386-apple-darwin9.1.0)
2.  Libraries have been installed in:

If you ever happen to want to link against installed libraries
in a given directory, LIBDIR, you must either use libtool, and
specify the full pathname of the library, or use the `-LLIBDIR'
flag during linking and do at least one of the following:
   - add LIBDIR to the `DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH' environment variable
     during execution

See any operating system documentation about shared libraries for
more information, such as the ld(1) and ld.so(8) manual pages.

To the best of my limited understading, Libgcrypt 1.4.0 has been
successfully installed in this compuner?

On a PPC machine though, it failed, see separate report.

Thank you Werner,
