Right.  I think it is much easier to install everything than to handle
cases of missing tools.  Given that for 2.1 dirmngr is required for gpg,
libksba needs to be installed anyway and thus there is not much to safe
by not installing gpgsm.

However building gpgme should work without the modules being installed;
I currently lack the time to look into this.  Patches welcome.
