Went there, done that, no t-shirt. Did not work.
In detail:
I downloaded all the files, did the 3-step waltz on them and the test

$ echo "test" | gpg -ase -r 0xDEADBEEF | gpg

worked all right (of course with my key-id).
All '.configure/make/make check/make install' returned no error so I=20
assumed the installation went allright.

Now I wanted to fill in the plugin into KMail but there is no plugin!
According to the website there should be a directory=20
/usr/local/lib/cryptplug with the file but there=20
isn't. slocate (after updatedb) returns nothing with this name.

I looked at the config.log in /misc/cryptplug-0.3.15 and found:

configure:7762: checking for gpgme-config
configure:7793: result: no
configure:7959: creating ./config.status
config.status:988: executing depfiles commands
        CryptPlug v0.3.15 has been configured as follows:

        CryptPlug GPGME: no

This may be the problem. But how do I solve it? I'm not knowledgeable=20
enough to solve this although I can do the normal installation of a=20
=2Etar.gz package.
