Well... it's sort of working...
After installing qt3-mac from ports I disabled the ports copy of
pinentry. I then downloaded the pinentry source and compiled it with
the following options, ./configure --enable-pinentry-qt
Open a terminal and type eval $(gpg-agent --daemon) followed by echo
$GPG_AGENT_INFO. Note the output of the latter.
Then start Applications / Utilities / X. In the xterm window start
Thunderbird by typing
Then under OpenPGP -> Preferences -> Additional parameters for gnupg
type --gpg-agent-info= followed by the output you noted from echo
Now try to send a signed message. Thunderbird will hang. However, if
you kill it by entering ctrl+c in the xterm window you will then notice
a window asking you to enter your passphrase!
So, partial success, I suppose...
