I thought "Plan C" was a requirement -- and from your first mails, I 
thought this was planned.

deskutils/kdepim4 LIB_DEPENDS on libassuan-1 and gpgme. security/gpgme 
RUN_DEPENDS on gpg2. security/gnupg LIB_DEPENDS on assuan.0.

Hence, building deskutils/kdepim4, I need security/libassuan-1 and 
security/libassuan installed that list each other in CONFLICTS.

I have not actually tried to build deskutils/kdepim4 after the gnupg 
update, but is it not currently broken?

If that is correct, either kde@ has to patch deskutils/kdepim4 (which 
they do not plan from the discussion at that list) or you have to patch 
security/libassuan-1 (which you do not plan from your statement above). 
Will we have a deskutils/kdepim4 with 8.1-RELEASE?
