Oops, I wrote and then I thought.

To speak with the libgcrypt manual (libgcrypt uses libgpg-error)

This manual is for Libgcrypt (version 1.4.4-svn1342, 20 October 2008),
which is GNU's library of cryptographic building blocks.

"Some error values do not indicate a system error or an error in the
operation, but the result of an operation that failed properly."

So, nothing to be found there, apart from the fact that it's an example
of the NO_DATA error.
