I was recently on the hunt for a COM component to use to be able to
script GPG and include it in .NET projects etc.   I found that GPGME
has a COM server but it doesn't want to build for me which is probably
something to do with my build environment not having all the required

stkni at ubuntu:~/pkgs/gpgme-1.1.4/complus$ make
if i586-mingw32msvc-gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I.. -I../jnlib    -g
-O2 -Wall -Wcast-align -Wshadow -Wstrict-prototypes -mms-bitfields -MT
gpgcom.o -MD -MP -MF ".deps/gpgcom.Tpo" -c -o gpgcom.o gpgcom.c; \
        then mv -f ".deps/gpgcom.Tpo" ".deps/gpgcom.Po"; else rm -f
".deps/gpgcom.Tpo"; exit 1; fi
gpgcom.c:33:22: argparse.h: No such file or directory
In file included from gpgcom.c:35:
main.h:24:21: xmalloc.h: No such file or directory
main.h:25:24: stringhelp.h: No such file or directory
main.h:26:21: logging.h: No such file or directory
... snip ...

I'm guessing that the build problem could be resolved but I was
wondering what the status of GPGCOM is and whether I should spend time
getting it to work or seek an alternative.

I apologise if this has been asked before but I couldn't find an
answer anywhere and I couldn't seem to search the mailman archives
(trying to do so gives me HTTP 403: Forbidden).

Many thanks,

Steve Knight
