That doesn't sound right.

I suspect that some packages find and want to use libgcrypt if it's
already installed, but build fine without it. If necessary, the
appropriate --disable-gcrypt (or similar) CONFIGURE_ARGS should be
set; or if it's really a useful addition for the package, the
dependency can be added (but then PKGREVISION must be increassed).

Others look just plain wrong, for example graphics/glu's source has no
reference to gcrypt.h.

Please check them again more closely.
