Sounds reasonable to me.

This might also help me fix a recently discovered issue with the SWIG
builds similar to your own observations with multiple installations of
dev versions versus system versions.

Specifically that SWIG does not appear to be picking up alternative
dependencies passed to configure during the compiling of GPGME if
there are also versions of those dependencies in $PREFIX and/or
$EPREFIX.  I'm still looking into where precisely that information
gets lost.
