I would also like to have another look at gcrypt, so far I have no
information about the failure.  Is it undefined references at link time?

I can probably help you, but not by doing the actual debugging myself. 
Instead, I want to ask you to provide more information first.

In a failing example, it would be nice to have the following:

A complete build log.  If possible, the whole build three somewhere, that
allows me to look at the actual object files.  Then you need to repeat the
gcc/link command that fails with -v, so we see the whole command.  The
version of gcc/g++/... (which Debian package) you are using is also important.

If you want to do some crunching on your own, I recommend to built the same
package in GNU/Linux and diff the results (it's not easy to diff object
files, adn that would be dependend on the compiler version, but arguments
etc should be near identical).
