GnuPG 2.2.32 with libgcrypt 1.8.8

I am really not a programmer ;-) but I tried to compile GnuPG 2.2.32 on my
Ubuntu 20.04 system.

Before I compiled libgcrypt 1.8.8 - seems to work, no error messages. So
these libreriers are going to /usr/local/lib

So I tell configure for GnuPG 2.2.32 to take this libgcrypt 1.8.8 files

with ./configure --with-libgcrypt-prefix=/usr/local

And configure tells me that files are found:

checking for libgcrypt-config... /usr/local/bin/libgcrypt-config
checking for LIBGCRYPT - version >= 1.8.0... yes (1.8.8)

But after "make" and "make install" I see the the GnuPG 2.2.32 doesn't use
libgcrypt 1.8.8 but 1.8.5 (which was installed by Ubuntu repository).

gpg --version
gpg (GnuPG) 2.2.32
libgcrypt 1.8.5

What I am doing wrong?
