You are right, sorry.  At some point I shifted and started to think
that we are talking about one of your own programs using GPGME!  My bad.

Please send me the config.log files, so I have some more information
about how the autoconf tests do on those systems.

It's not supposed to be that rocky, but we can only test on a few
systems, so it's possible that you had some bad luck.  I am definitely
interested in fixing GPGME so that the tests compile and run out of
the box.

So, to get back on the track from that I slipped off, let me summarize:

To compile and run the tests successfully, you had to add the file
offset bits symbol to the Makefile of GPGME, right?

To proceed, I need at the very least the config.log file from that
compilation, to see how the tests work out.  If you could provide
that, I hope that will shed some light on this issue.

Thanks for the patience!
