gpgme tests fail

Hi Folks,
I'm trying to work with GPGME 1.0.1, and I'm not having much luck. (In fact, 
I'm trying to update an existing program that uses GPGME 0.3, but I'll leave 
those complications for another time...)

I get the following output from ./configure:
        GPGME v1.0.1 has been configured as follows:

        GnuPG path:    /usr/local/bin/gpg
        GnuPG version: 1.4.0, min. 1.2.2

        GpgSM path:    no
        GpgSM version: unknown, min. 1.9.6

        GPGME Pthread: yes
        GPGME Pth:     

I don't know if the blank "GPGME Pth:" should worry me, but everything seems 
to compile just fine. However, when I try to run the test programs, I get:
 t-decrypt.c:64: GPGME: Decryption failed
 t-encrypt.c:59: GPGME: End of file
Neither of which makes me think it's working.

How can I figure out what's going wrong here? The specified lines of code 
aren't particularly interesting, and as far as I can see, there's no debug or 
verbose options.

Thanks for the help,
