I'm trying to compile 2.0.29 and I'm running into a problem. I've
compiled all of the dependencies and, when I try to compile gnupg
itself, I get the following error:

Making all in openpgp
make[3]: Entering directory
echo '#!/bin/sh' >./gpg_dearmor
echo "../../g10/gpg2 --homedir . --no-options --no-greeting \
             --no-secmem-warning --batch --dearmor" >>./gpg_dearmor
chmod 755 ./gpg_dearmor
./gpg_dearmor > ./pubring.gpg < ./pubring.asc
../../g10/gpg2: error while loading shared libraries:
cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
make[3]: *** [pubring.gpg] Error 127
make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/anthony/Source/gnupg-2.0.29/tests/openpgp'
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/anthony/Source/gnupg-2.0.29'
make: *** [all] Error 2

It eems the problem is in libgcrypt so I recompiled it to make sure it
was properly installed and it made no difference.

Can anyone give me a clue as to what might be going wrong or how to fix
