Hi Fillod,

Thanks for the patch and a number of the fixes within it.  Thinking
about it a little bit, instead of just checking for gcrypt, I'm actually
thinking a compile option for "in-band only" might be more appropriate.
I assume you won't do IPMI over LAN at all??  If so, I can begin working
on a patch for 0.7.11 for this.  Please LMK.

I'll get the remaining parts of your patch in the HEAD and 0.7.X branch.
