This ebuild has been forked from Gentoo Linux, primarily to implement the [[Package:Libgcrypt (Compatibility Libraries)|libgcrypt-compat ebuild]]. There was an ABI change between libgcrypt 1.5 and 1.6, meaning apps written for one may not work with the other.

Gentoo has an older version of libgcrypt that just installs a compatibility library, and uses a sub-slot to differentiate between the two.

I thought it best to have a separate ebuild called libgcrypt-compat for providing older versions of the libgcrypt shared library, and nothing else, specificially indended for binary package compatibility. Details can be found in {{Bug|FL-1145}}.
+
This ebuild is designed to install alongside the newer libgcrypt ebuild, providing the older shared libraries only, but no headers, and is designed not to touch the main .so symlink. This way, binary packages can find and use this library just fine, but from-source ebuilds will continue to use libgcrypt.

Summary: Libgcrypt is a general purpose cryptographic library. This version of Libgcrypt is is designed to sit alongside an existing libgcrypt install, and just provide compatibility libs for apps that require an older libgcrypt.


Libgcrypt (Compatibility Libraries)

This ebuild was added to Funtoo Linux to serve as a compatibility library for binary ebuilds that require an older version of libgcrypt.

This ebuild is designed to install alongside the newer libgcrypt ebuild, providing the older shared libraries only, but no headers, and is designed not to touch the main .so symlink. This way, binary packages can find and use this library just fine, but from-source ebuilds will continue to use libgcrypt.
