Is it possible to update the version of gcrypt?

I would like to make use of an AES mode only available in the most recent
version of gcrypt (1.6).  Is it possible to upgrade the version that comes
as a result of running the Windows 'setup' target?

My guess is that its not easy, and that we take the version that came with
an old version of gnutls, whereas recent versions now use nettle as the
low-level crypto library?  We have 10 dissectors that use libgcrypt, so
moving to nettle would take a bit of work.  I'm not yet certain that nettle
supports what I need (never mind the other current users of gcrypt)- I'd
need to write a test program to see if it does what I need.
