ffontaine added a comment to T5587: src/posix-io.c: fix build with glibc >= 2.34.

Nevermind, I found the appropriate link above, thanks again.

Thanks for noticing me but I can't access your git repository at https://dev.gnupg.org/source/gnupg.git and the github mirror at https://github.com/gpg/gpgme is not up to date. Do you have an other mirror?

ffontaine added a comment to T5296: libgpg-error: build failure without threads.

I was not the author of the host "hacking" which has been committed to buildroot in 2016 by https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/package/?id=2f89476ad98b82ea9f914337b0050c4808082c82 so I can't really comment on it.
You can find more information here: https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/project/buildroot/patch/1451762923-15985-1-git-send-email-joerg.krause@embedded.rocks/
Especially, it seems that Jörg Krause started a discussion about this issue and proposed a patch to fix the architecture depends but it was never applied. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find more information as it seems that links on comments.gmane.org are broken ...

This won't work in the context of buildroot as we're passing --host="arm-unknown-linux-gnueabi" to avoid the following build failure:

Because, threads are optional on uclibc as threads are not supported by all embedded targets.
libgpg-error was building perfectly fine without threads until version 1.40 as all pthread calls were protected by USE_POSIX_THREADS.
Should I understand from your answer that threads are now mandatory?

ffontaine added a comment to T5263: cipher/sha512.c: build failure without arm neon asm.

It seems that this issue has already been reported with a better fix: https://lists.gnupg.org/pipermail/gcrypt-devel/2021-January/005060.html
Feel free to close this issue.

ffontaine added a comment to T4663: libgcrypt: fix build without threads by adding an option to disable tests.

Fixing t-lock is indeed a better solution however having an option to disable tests could be used in another context than fixing this issue.
For example, in the context of buildroot (which goal is to build a custom embedded linux system), this option could be used to save time during compilation as well as to save space on the embedded system.
