gniibe added a comment to T4678: libassuan.pc missing include dir directive in cflags.

Well, gpg-error is special. For other libraries, adding -I and -L is enough and good.
Fixed in master.

gniibe triaged T4678: libassuan.pc missing include dir directive in cflags as Normal priority.

Thank you. I only tested a configuration where installation of libassuan has same prefix as libgpg-error. That's the reason why this bug exists.

werner triaged T4588: gpg-agent should guess pinentry's full path (using $PATH) if `pinentry-program` does not supply a full path as Normal priority.

werner added a comment to T4588: gpg-agent should guess pinentry's full path (using $PATH) if `pinentry-program` does not supply a full path.

As I said we do this with all GnuPG components. Pinentry is a bit of exception because it is an external package.
I have also had bug reports which later turned out that a wrong pinentry was used; I prefer to know eactly which pinentry is used. Regarding your concrete problem I suggested to add a note with the full name of the pinentry or to change the error message to something better understandable.

dkg added a comment to T4588: gpg-agent should guess pinentry's full path (using $PATH) if `pinentry-program` does not supply a full path.

So this is a defense against an adversary capable of creating a pinentry-wrapper somewhere in $PATH, but not capable of modifying gpg-agent.conf? It sounds to me like this is a defense against a very unusually-constrained attacker, at the expense of regular, common bug reports and user confusion.

werner removed a project from T4588: gpg-agent should guess pinentry's full path (using $PATH) if `pinentry-program` does not supply a full path: Bug Report.

GnuPG invokes its components always with their absolute file name. We want to mitigate attacks where malware creates a pinentry wrapper somewhere in an improper set PATH.

Topic branch of libgpg-error is not good to show changes (for other libraries).
So, I made D473: Introducing LDADD_FOR_TESTS_KLUDGE to enable 'make check' with LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
Appliying to libgpg-error.

My tentative conclusion: When (GNU) ld supports --disable-new-dtags, add it to LDADD in tests/Makefile.am.

Reading this discussion: http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-libtool/2018-01/msg00014.html
It seems that it could be fixed if we care about the order of libraries.
And it's not the issue for libgpg-error, which doesn't require external libraries.

For binutils, in Stretch, Debian specific patch was introduced.
Then, upstream introduced --enable-new-dtags option for configure to build binutils.
Now, Debian uses --enable-new-dtags option (at build time).
