I admit I use gpg just for checking signatures of rpm files and it used  
to work before. Earlier version based on gpgme-0.3.x worked just fine. I  
actually think that checking for gpg when gpgme is build is not  
sufficient: one can compile binary on one computer and then copy files  
over (or via binary rpm/deb package) to another computer. Providing more  
diagnostics would be really, really useful here. I have impression that  
mozilla uses similar setup but they link gpgme statically, don't they?

Great - thanks in advance!
