Newbie - compiling gnupg-1.4.6 and GpgSM

I am trying to update, extend (and actually begin to use),
the gpg on this rather old Slackware box (9.1).
gnupg-2.0.1 needs some libraries. That is fine, but one of
them is libpthread. (I have /lib/libpthread-0.10.so, but no
pth-config and I can't persuade .configure to find / use
my 0.10.) As I understand it, libpthread is part of libc,
and I do not feel competent to disturb my installed libc by
So, I fall back on gnupg-1.4.6, which compiles and installs
Then I try to install gpgme-1.0.3. It wants GpgSM version
min. 1.9.6. As I understand it (I have googled and searched
the archive of this list), GpgSM is now part of
gnupg-2.0.1, which I can't have for the reason given above.
I have tried to find sources for GpgSM by following the
links in old posts on this list to Project Ägypten - but if
the sources for GpgSM were ever available there, I can't
find them now.
Is there somewhere I can find GpgSM sources for my
gnupg-1.4.6 / gpgme-1.0.3 please?
Any other advice?
