That's not quite true. First, you only care about m4 macros if you rerun 
bootstrap, which is to say, use the "maintainer mode" and modify the build 
system. If you get the official source tarball, you couldn't care less, and 
that's definitely the recommended method for "packagers". Second, libgcrypt 
is a recommended dependency when building anyhow, being needed for TLS 
support (through gnutls), Secure RTP, and hopefully soon secure update 
notification. Again, while I expect custom embedded builds not to use 
libgcrypt, I hope that normal "packagers" do use it.
