In principle, yes, but this would mean that gpgme.h needs to be
generated by configure, which has the relevant tests what needs to
happen for large file support (and knows if it was switched off
deliberately). Making these changes and testing them(!) is quite a
hassle. Yet, it's one of the main problems that people have these
days when using GPGME, so it's worth considering.
