Sorry for the misunderstanding. If you were to take a look at the
patches I posted you would see that they are not to the libassuan or
gnupg2 sources, they are for the FreeBSD ports. Our ports are similar
to source RPMs. Werner is correct that no patches are needed to the
sources for either to build on FreeBSD.

Hrrm, I always build without NLS, but I just tested gnupg2 without
that configure flag and it builds and runs just fine on FreeBSD, FYI.

BTW, I'm still seeing the "Warning: using insecure memory!" error, in
spite of having the no-secmem-warning option in my gpg.conf. I'm still
willing to help debug that if Werner can give me some pointers.
