As I said in my previous reply, I'm not too happy with this
libgcrypt-config variable creeping into the global cross-compilation
file. Can we instead look at extending what Peter Seiderer is doing in
http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/1081486/ and allow some per-package
additions to the per-package cross-compilation file ? Peter's patch
does it for CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS/LDFLAGS, we could perhaps do the same with
arbitrary program paths ?
