Hmmm, can you do a very simple compile? Such as

#include <gcrypt.h>

int main() {
gcry_md_open(NULL, 0, 0);

then compile

gcc foo.c -lgcrypt

internally, this is basically all configure is doing to check for libgcrypt.

I initially tried a ./configure as is which resulted in the following:

configure: error: libgcrypt required to build libfreeipmi

I then tried running:

# ./configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib64

and got the same result.

As a last ditch effort I modified the paths in the configure script to include /usr/lib64, but still go the same error.

Here is the installed libgcrypt:

[root@vm-pteng-FreeIPMI-02 freeipmi-1.4.9]# locate libgcrypt
