Doesn't really matter.  Just add --with-gpgsm=/usr/bin/gpgsm to the
configure line, and when gpgsm is available and installed, *poof*, it
will work.

Of course, for real usability, you may want to make gpgme suggest or
recommend gpgsm.

I guess for the current release you might want to compile it without
gpgsm support.  It doesn't matter, but in either case I think a
dependency on the first gpgme version compiled with gpgsm support will
need to be added to the gpgsm package manually.

It already is, in fact, we are trying to encourage Debian people to
package it for months now.  There has been some work on it, but no
real break-through yet.

Are you interested? :)
