Did you install the correct libgcrypt*-dev package (assuming you are
using a pre-packaged version) and can configure find it?  Enter

   libgcrypt-config --version

This should show you a 1.7 version number.  If it does not, try

  which libgcrypt-config 

this should show you from where it was executed.  Non-distro installed
packages will find that script in /usr/local/bin and not in /usr/bin/.

If not there are two ways to fix that:

  - Put /usr/local/bin into your PATH right before /usr/bin.  You will
    also need to run "hash -r" to tell the shell to forget all cached
    program locations (or start a new shell).


  - Make sure /usr/local/lib is known to ldconfig.  That is put this
    directory name into /etc/ or a separate file under
    /etc/  Then run ldconfig

the second option is to

  - Add 
    (note: without the "/bin" part)
    or whereever you installed libgcrypt 1.7
    to the configure invocation

  - To actually run things you need to make /usr/local/lib also known to
    the runtime linke, as described above.  Alternatively you can set
    LD_LIBRARY_PATH to that directory.
