I had the same thought. Yes, it turns out that the rhel5 box that I built it on 
has libgcrypt 1.4.4 running on it since its registered to the RHN. The new box 
I was trying to run freeipmi on hasn't been registered with RHN yet so was 
running 1.2.6. Upgrading to 1.4.4 fixed the problem and its working now.

Hey Kevin,

I have an idea.  Did you compile FreeIPMI against one version of
libgcrypt, but are running on a machine w/ a different version of

I find it hard to believe that the difference between two versions could
cause this problem, I think it's possible (given the way I'm reading how
the call to 'gcry_check_version' works).  I'll have to think about how I
can return a better error message if this is what's happening.
