Hi Daniel,

I see that someone at libgpg-error did something really cool: They wrote
a script src/gen-lock-obj.sh that can generate this annoying
lock-obj-pub header during cross compilation. In the long run, this will
remove the need for most of syscfg. Awesome!

Unfortunately, it doesn't quite work just yet. For starters, the script
isn't included in the source. Thus running it from configure fails. To
make matters worse, configure doesn't notice that it is missing. It
ignores the error and moves on with an empty header.

The real solution here is including src/gen-lock-obj.sh. I'm also
attaching a stop-gap solution that restores the previous way of cross
building. Please consider applying the attached patch until the next
upstream release.
