[Filesystems-devel] Bug#764927: ecryptfs-utils: Built against NSS, depends and build-depends on gcrypt seem to be superfluous

ecryptfs-utils build-depends on libgcrypt11-dev and libecryptfs-dev
also depends on the package. However afaict ecryptfs-utils is not
using lgcrypt but NSS nowadays:
ametzler at argenau:/tmp/RDEPGNUTLS/ecryptfs-utils-103$ grep -rli gcry
i.e. there are no invocations of gcrypt functions. The matches in
configure* are in a comment/description, and the ones in Makefile.* are
for $(LIBGCRYPT_CFLAGS)/$(LIBGCRYPT_LIBS) which afaict is never set.
I think from browsing over configure.ac that gcrypt is not a supported
crypto backend anymore but used to be.
Checking what happens when building ecryptfs-utils without
libgcrypt11-dev installed seems to confirm my reading, the relevant
pieces of the buildlog do not change.
