heh, not really. that's where i _started_ -- been all through those pages.

afaict, nothing addresses the 'assuan' problem apparent i'm seeing in
the svn src-build, but lacking in the v0.7.2 build, which is ok
(mostly ... )

atm, i've rebuilt pinentry v072, config'd as,

        Pinentry v0.7.2 has been configured as follows:
        Curses Pinentry: yes
        GTK+ Pinentry: no
        GTK+-2 Pinentry: no
        Qt Pinentry: yes
        W32 Pinentry: no
        Fallback to Curses: yes
        Default Pinentry: pinentry-qt

so that,

% ls -al /usr/local/bin/pinentry*
  lrwxr-xr-x 1 root admin      11 Jan 23 14:19 /usr/local/bin/pinentry
-> pinentry-qt
  -rwxr-xr-x 1 root admin  124972 Jan 23 14:19 /usr/local/bin/pinentry-curses
  -rwxr-xr-x 1 root admin 2262216 Jan 23 14:19 /usr/local/bin/pinentry-qt

in TESTING, i see:

(1) CASE: pinentry-curses
/bin/sh -c '/usr/local/bin/pinentry-curses --lc-ctype=UTF-8'
   OK Your orders please
SETDESC This is a test
	    x This is a test                                x
	    x                                               x
	    x PIN: *************___________________________ x
	    x                                               x
	    x          <OK>                 <Cancel>        x
	D (my_pass_phrase)

which is OK (i think ...)


(2) CASE: pinentry-qt
/bin/sh -c '/usr/local/bin/pinentry-qt --lc-ctype=UTF-8'
   OK Your orders please
SETDESC This is a test

pops up a Desktop dialog,

which, unfortunately, cannot grab focus for the field entry.  you'll
note in the posted image that the form field has a cursor _in_ it, but
is 'grayed out'.  clicking on it does no good.  can't enter a thing
... :-/
