Strange name for a working directory ;-)

I meanwhile figured out what the problem is.  The tests are not really
correct becuase they require a running gpg-agent.  You also need to make
sure that all libraries are found if they are not installed in a
standard place.

Try this:

  $ agent/gpg-agent --daemon sh
  $ make check

If it does work, you may try a "cd tests && make clean" first but with
the agent running.  For the next release I will change the tests to work
properly by using the just build gpg-agent.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Auschnahme regelt ein Bundeschgesetz.
