gpgme-1.8.0 does not build on Mac OS X

I most most of my development on Mac these days. Based on my research and testing out the solution I proposed, I feel confident that this is the correct fix.

Just my $0.02

    Yes, this pops up again and again.  On our build server we do exactly
    what Jeffrey suggested, and we could just do it in our configure
    scripts, like we set _GNU_SOURCE on glibc systems.  The problem is
    mostly that we have little experience with the Apple environment, and
    did not feel confident about just doing that.  But I guess we should
    just do that.  Thoughts?
