Yes. The PGP/MIME with KMail howto includes this option because for=20
using the S/MIME plugin you have to install a few more libraries than=20
the few that are mentioned in the howto. The howto is only there for=20
people who want to use PGP/MIME but who don't need S/MIME.

then compiling gpgme without this flag should enable S/MIME support.=20
Read http://www.gnupg.org/aegypten/development.en.html if you want to=20
