I don't think so... I developed the GnuPG support for the Gnome MUA balsa  
completely on a PowerMac G4 Silver running YellowDog Linux 3.01, kernel  
2.4.25-ben1, glibc 2.3.1, various gcc 3.2 and 3.3 versions and using  
almost all gpgme releases between 0.4.1 and 1.0.0 - I never saw any real  

I only missed at some point in the docs that the large file support had  
changed (as Werner pointed out in an earlier message), of course leading  
to problems with gpgme_data_seek() and the seek callback. Adding  
AC_SYS_LARGEFILE to configure.in fixed the problem. So I guess there is  
some conflict with Gentoo and large files, i.e. `_FILE_OFFSET_BITS' and  
`_LARGE_FILES' are not set implicitly?

If you have a Gnome 2 installation on your box, you might want to give  
Balsa a try (see http://balsa.gnome.org), or have a look at the core  
source file (which does not use the seek methods and should work safely  
with *and* without large file support):
