[Freeipmi-devel] [PATCH] freeimpi in embedded world

I don't know whether it's been done already, me and a colleague, 
we're trying to use freeipmi in an embedded machine. The machine
is running Linux 2.6 nodes on powerpc SoC. The cross-compilation
tool chain is based on uClibc, and we have to keep the library
dependency low.

Please find attached a patch against freeipmi 0.7.10 with following

* Allow FreeIPMI to build without libgcrypt and libgpg-error. 
  This proves useful for embedded machines using only SSIF/openipmi.
  Feel free to comment on the way how to make libgcrypt optional.
  BTW, there was a typo in have_gcrypte_header.
* Check for cbrt(), which may be missing in uClibc.
* common/src/toolcommon/tool-cmdline-common.c: no need to check X_OK 
  file access right upon driver device, this is too restrictive.

Thanks for making available freeimpi.
