Re: balsa gpg with pinentry?

I tried following the instructions at
for caching passphrases, but it still somehow doesn't work, most likely because debian sid doesn't provide the right packages:

$ dpkg -l | egrep '(libgcrypt|libksba|libassuan|dirmgr|pinentry| gnupg)'
ii  gnupg          1.2.5-3        GNU privacy guard - a free PGP
ii  libassuan-dev  0.6.7-1        IPC library for the GnuPG comp
ii libgcrypt1 1.1.12-8 LGPL Crypto library - runtime library ii libgcrypt11 1.2.0-10 LGPL Crypto library - runtime library
ii  libgcrypt11-de 1.2.0-10       LGPL Crypto library - development
ii libgcrypt7 1.1.90-9 LGPL Crypto library - runtime library
ii  libksba-dev    0.9.9-2        X.509 and CMS support library
ii  libksba8       0.9.9-2        X.509 and CMS support library
ii  pinentry-gtk   0.7.1-5        GTK+-based PIN or pass-phrase entry

Do I really need newer-than-bleeding-edge packages to get pinentry working with balsa?

If you want only to cache the passphrase, you can use seahorse.
In the gnome desktop preferences, select pgp preferences and there, you will be able to cache the password. It will be asked the first time you use it and will remain active until the amount of time specified there is elapsed

The instructions on the abovementioned page are a little confusing, as it seems as though the instructions for getting pinentry to work have been intermixed with instructions on getting gpgsm, with the result being that I don't know which steps are required to get pinentry working, and which are not.

Any help would be appreciated, and I'd be happy to document the process once I have it working.
