Hello Rodney,

I went back and did the following.

1. added 1 line containing '/usr/local' to last line of /etc/
  and ran "ldconfig -v" (did not find ldconf as a command).

2. went back to gpgme-0.3.9 and did the following:

./configure --enable-gpgmeplug
make install

3. went back to sylpheed-0.8.5 and did the following:

./configure --enable-gpgme
make install

4. when I ran sylpheed after  the above, no privacy button
  found in  "Common Preferences".

5. I have read through all the faqs and nothing hits home about what
  I need.

One thing i did notice... there is no path to GPGsm ... I cannot
find out what that is and where i download it and install it. I don't
know if I need that or not.
