Libgsasl uses gnulib for crypto functions such as MD5 and SHA1. Gnulib,
in turn, can either use libgcrypt if available, or use builtin code.
So libgsasl does work without libgcrypt when the configure script does
not detect it.

So we need to either explicitly depend on it (like your patch does), or
explicitly disable it. I think explicitly depending on it is the right
