Not sure how/why this was forwarded.  Most users of Linux and various other
open source operating systems use the package management of their
distribution to install GPG or other tools.  They handle updates, including
security fixes/backports of features.  I am sure people who use libgcrypt
from source are on their mailing list themselves so they can keep up to
date.   For the rest who use gentoo/ports/pkgsrc, it is most likely already
updated and you just need to update your sources and recompile.
