Thanks.  Couldn't get it to work with gpgme03.  I have gpgme installed
(as it's needed by a number of my installed ports) but I'm trying to
install a sylpheed-claws-gtk2 tarball with gpg-mime support and it
doesn't work with the newer gpgme 1.0.x versions.

I have both

and I think I'm getting errors when installing because they're both in
identical paths and it's trying to build against the newer version.  It
builds fine if I disable pgp-mime support.

For example, the --help file says:

~/src/sylpheed-claws$ ./configure --help | grep gpg
  --with-gpgme-prefix=PFX prefix where GPGME is installed (optional)

So I've been trying to build with:


Any ideas how I might work around this?
