They should have been updated in head to the LGPLv3 as well.

Interesting. I don't remember why this wasn't included in the 0.12.x
version. Although it is not a strict C requirement, enumerations have
the same size as integers in most compilers (including gcc) and thus
they are binary compatible.

I'll keep it for a while just in case someone volunteers to update
the gcrypt code (currently it is impossible since gcrypt doesn't
have GCM that is now required but it might be available later).
