It would be simpler to replace 'libgcrypt-config --libs' by 'pkg-config
--libs' (with a substitute*, post-unpack) and likewise for
'libgcrypt-config --libs', to avoid executing a script compiled for
another architecture locally (it works because of a preceding $(shell
..., though doesn't seem great to me).

(Additionally, maybe upstream would be interested in pkg-config which
mostly just works when cross-compiling, in constrast to ...-config

If you're using G-exps, you might as well replace (assoc-ref %outputs
"out") by #$output.  Also, there's no configure phase, it has been

You can simplify this by adding vpnc itself to the native-inputs (conditional
on %current-target-system to avoid a cycle) and when cross-compiling, copy the
man page from the native input to vpnc.8 (pre-build, instead of replacing build,
then you don't needd to fiddle with parallelism flags or the install phase).

Independent change, so for a separate commit.  Also, I don't think it's
worth it to remove the double installation -- we would be deviating
from upstream and at most some KB would be saved but we have automated
depulication.  Or maybe it's nice for consistency, dunno.

Again independent change -- I don't think it was necessary to mention
the file names (but I don't think they have to be removed either). More
precise license information looks nice.
