The check for gcrypt lib is made in src/CMakeLists.txt:

# Check for libgcrypt

As you can see, it is supposed to be "REQUIRED", so cmake should stop immediately if gcrypt is not found.
But when I tried, cmake did not display any error, and you can compile sources (with the errors you have).
I'll look at this problem.

By the way, you can remove the cmake flag "-DENABLE_GCRYPT=ON", it's now obsolete because gcrypt is required (this option has been removed from main CMakeLists.txt in version 0.3.9).

I actually used cmake for the compilation, with those options:

I attach the file build.log which is a full log of the automatic compilation procedure on my distribution; this time in english and without distcc.

Furthermore, I try to execute the configure script and it effectively fails on libgcrypt (I attach the configure log in configure.log).

I'm not used to cmake, but contrary to configure.in that have a gcrypt part, I didn't find the same part in the CMakeLists.txt

(file #26881, file #26882)

The gcrypt lib is supposed to be detected by both cmake and configure, and gcrypt is mandatory since v0.3.9.

By the way, cmake is the only recommended way to compile WeeChat, the configure script may be removed in future).

So please paste full log using cmake (or configure if you can really not use cmake).
Please run the script with english locale (I'm french, but other people will not be able to understand).

The compilation failed if libgcrypt is not installed, in both stable (from 0.3.9) and in dev release :

weechat-0.3.9/src/plugins/irc/irc-sasl.c:29:20: erreur fatale: gcrypt.h : Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type
