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.
