I know all too well. Unfortunately a committer made a hasty move and updated
libassuan to version 2.0.0 and then made gnupg 2.x use the newer libassuan.
This of course turns into a chain of conflicts because everything else that
depends on libassuan 1.x usually needs gnupg 2.x as well.
I am working to resolve the situation for my ports, however, the author of gpa
has not released a version that will work with libassuan 2.x. There is a
ports freeze now too, so I am not sure if my updates will even go through for
a while. If you really need to use gpa immediately, I suggest downgrading
everything that depended on libassuan 2.x to use libassuan 1.x.
