Build gnupg on windows
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

gpg4win builds gnupg + a bunch of other things (such as a complete kde stack for kleopatra), with the mms-bitfield flag. All of this is crosscompiled on linux, instead of natively built on windows.
We can either copy the binaries from gpg4win, and then rebuild our complete stack with the mms-bitfield flag on top of that, or we find a way to build gnupg on windows without the mms-bitfield flag.
I suggest we try to build gnupg first (everything else we have already)

We decided to go with the installer:
http://files.gpg4win.org/gpg4win-vanilla-2.2.0.exe

This installer has to be installed next to the kdepim package and is not part of the build process (It's a runtime dependency).

Building it from scratch is difficult because it only works in mingw (apparently), and mingw + autotools would also be something completely new for emerge, which so far is purely cmake based.

Note that we have hardcoded paths in the pgpme we bulid that point to the gnupg installation.
