Oooh, you got some paths wrong.

1. --prefix must be the *host* path.  This means that it should just be
"/usr", not $ROOTDIR/usr.  But this breaks make install, so ...

2. ... you need to specify $ROOTDIR with make install:
   $ make install DESTDIR="$ROOTDIR"

3. --with-gpg and --with-gpgsm also must be *host* paths, and in fact the full
   filename to the gpg binary, so:
   --with-gpg=/usr/bin/gpg --with-gpgsm=/usr/bin/gpgsm

   These files do not need to exist.  They are not used at build time (unless
you run the test suite, which is disabled when cross compiling).

The --with-pth spec is fine.

Good luck,
