The GPGME package is a C language library that allows to add support for cryptography to a program. It is designed to make access to public key crypto engines like GnuPG or GpgSM easier for applications. GPGME provides a high-level crypto API for encryption, decryption, signing, signature verification and key management.
This package is known to build and work properly using an LFS-7.7 platform.

Install GPGME by running the following commands:
./configure --prefix=/usr \ --disable-fd-passing \ --disable-gpgsm-test && make
The test suite was modified and is close to useless, with 2/3 of failures.
Now, as the
--disable-fd-passing: This option
disables a problem causing a hang for some operations on some
--disable-gpgsm-test: This option
disables a test with gpgsm in some systems breaking make.
