Thanks. I'll let someone more familiar with automake to review automake
parts. Just a comment to import_gcry

crypto and experimental branches have newer which has
less warning by skipping copying files unnecessary for grub2. If you
want to fix remaining warnings (on rsa, dsa, elgamal, primegen and ecc)
implement assymetric cryptography support (it's planned but may need
changes to core to be useful, there are lower hanging fruits for crypto).

This NoWarn is just suppressing legitimate warnings
