Then the documentation needs to be fixed, it advises to use
gcry_check_version (GCRYPT_VERSION)

with https://codesearch.debian.net/search?q=gcry_check_version&perpkg=1

you can find a lot of packages using that. Perhaps a lintian error would
need to be added to make sure that packages are not doing that.
