Bug Description

Binary package hint: libgcrypt11

/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgcrypt.la
  contains the line:
libdir='/lib/i386-linux-gnu'
  but this causes compiles to fail when linking against libgcrypt when using libtool, as the .la file is obviously not in this location. if you change the .la file to have:
libdir='/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu'
  instead, linking against libgcrypt works just fine. looks like something in the packaging didn't "fix up the la file" correctly.
in ubuntu natty. libgcrypt11-dev package contents. file at top.
