I don't care about staruml-bin but libgcrypt is one of those legacy
libraries that would be helpful to keep around for older proprietary
software that is not in the tree. In particular, it is used by
Half-Life 2 and Portal, not exactly obscure games. It is included in
the Steam runtime but we highly recommend against using that because it
causes many issues.

If you want me to maintain this version then I can do that. If it's
otherwise causing real issues by being in the tree then I could move it
to steam-overlay but I'd rather not. There may be non-Steam use cases.
