libassuan is included.  The error is that it tries to build engine-gpgsm.

Yes, this was reported at friday on gnupg-devel already.  I will
release gpgme 1.0.1 tonight (likely).

It's a simple bug in the configure check for gpgsm presence.  There is
a patch on gnupg-devel.  As a work around, you could just specify
"--with-gpgsm=/usr/bin/gpgsm" to fake gpgsm presence at configure
