Yes, there is little I can do about it right now.  The tests involving
gpg-agent are bound to fail for now.  Even if we can get a gpg-agent,
we need to make sure it doesn't try to pop up a dialog, but uses some hard
coded password somewhere (because popping up a dialog won't work in text

Ah, yes.  Hopelessly optimistic, gpgme still tries to use gpg-agent in
"batch" mode so you use a hard coded password.  Werner added this initially
tohelp my testing effort, but it is by now gone for the good, and I forgot
to remove it from the test suite.

I am happy to see that!  You could also try to enable the genkey test.  Add
"t-genkey" to the TESTS line in, and run

make distclean

in the root directory of the source (the "make" commands in the root dir of
the build tree if different from the source dir).  Then make check will also
run the genkey check, which failed on me last time I tried because I had an
old libgcrypt.  Maybe it actually works.

(You can of course try to hack the created Makefile to runt he test without
rebuilding everything).
