kmail and gpgme

as I was adviced in de.comp.os.unix.apps.kde I would like to bother you with a
question regarding kmail and gpgme. To keep a long and boring story short, I
can't get it to work. All I get is a message telling me:
"Bibliotheksdatei des Moduls /usr/lib/libgpgme.so.11 konnte nicht geladen
(code: /usr/lib/libgpgme.so.11: undefined symbol: initialize)"
Well, sorry it's in german. It means like couldn't load shared object
I tried to get that to work for a very long time now, every now and again
trying it whenever new versions of gnupg or kde came out but whatever I do,
it always shows this message in a msg box when I start kmail. When I try to
display an PGP/MIME signed or encrypted mail, it says in the header 'No
suitable plugin found, /usr/lib/libgpgme.so.11: was not initialized'
I tried several tutorials, including one I found in the archive of that list
and that one at http://kmail.kde.org/kmail-pgpmime-howto.html.
My system is Fedora Core 2 on a duron if that matters. KDE is 3.2.3 stable
from rpm but I've had the problem for a long time and several kde versions
now starting with RedHat9. The rest of the system should be pretty ordinary
but I vaguely remember havin experimented with that stuff for a long time now
so it might be possible that some relics are interfering in some way.
However, I double checked everything I know about that and I don't really
think so since I did also run ldd on gpgme and followed all the links and
found nothing suspicious.
I tried to install all versions of gnupg, the agent, libgcrypt, gpgme and
libassuan I could find. From tarball, rpm, src.rpm, all sorts of experiments
but I didn't succeed yet and before I eventually give up once more to try it
again in a couple of month I would appreciate any suggestions from you guys.
BTW, gnupg inline works fine.
