Actually there is no need to port it because gpg4win already provided
them (GTK+-2, though, but that is just a minor thing).  The vanilla
installer from does not come with Qt or GTK
pinentries for the simple reason that this requires to deliver huge
amounts of GUI framework stuff (binary and source) for just a single
simple GUI applications (pinentry).  The speedo build script once did
this but I removed it because it does not make sense to add all this
stuff to the GnuPG (backend) installer.

I already looked into FLTK to provide a better Pinentry while keeping
the size of the installer small.  I think that will be possible but
needs more work.



I will not be available to help any Google recruitment program.
