I think that you need to debug libgcrypt to locate the bug. If you are
familiar with GDB, run gpg under GDB with a break point at main, and
then a break point at lock_pool_pages.
Well, please show us the information in which architecuture/OS you runs
GnuPG. Are you using GnuPG 2.1.x or another version?
I'm afraid you are using libgcrypt 1.7.4. In version 1.7.4, there was
a bug in configure script, which might cause such a trouble.
