ticky added a comment to T4678: libassuan.pc missing include dir directive in cflags.

Hi there, this change is very useful on the Homebrew project's upcoming ARM port. The Mac package manager's base library prefix will change from the existing presumed defaults to prevent backwards-incompatibility, making pkg-config compatibility somewhat more important.

werner added a comment to T5048: Error handling in libassuan.

To implement this it would be best to have an gpg_strerror variant which does not call dgettext.

re 1: Correct utf-8 truncation would be quite some work. In this case the message is in the Assuan interface is a debugging aid. Translation is not necessary so we can try to disable it.

No, c99 was never required. Meanwhile we use a few c99 features but those are supported without any compiler option.

werner added a comment to T5005: Unified single header file if it offers same API.

We have had this in the past but it led to subtle build and, worse, runtime problems. Thus the decision to provide architecture dependent files and have configure complain for wrong files. Right, you sometimes get false warnings for non-matching cpu-vendor-os strings but I consider this less severe than the old problem.

Well, gpg-error is special. For other libraries, adding -I and -L is enough and good.
Fixed in master.

Thank you. I only tested a configuration where installation of libassuan has same prefix as libgpg-error. That's the reason why this bug exists.

werner added a comment to T4588: gpg-agent should guess pinentry's full path (using $PATH) if `pinentry-program` does not supply a full path.

As I said we do this with all GnuPG components. Pinentry is a bit of exception because it is an external package.
I have also had bug reports which later turned out that a wrong pinentry was used; I prefer to know eactly which pinentry is used. Regarding your concrete problem I suggested to add a note with the full name of the pinentry or to change the error message to something better understandable.

dkg added a comment to T4588: gpg-agent should guess pinentry's full path (using $PATH) if `pinentry-program` does not supply a full path.

So this is a defense against an adversary capable of creating a pinentry-wrapper somewhere in $PATH, but not capable of modifying gpg-agent.conf? It sounds to me like this is a defense against a very unusually-constrained attacker, at the expense of regular, common bug reports and user confusion.

werner removed a project from T4588: gpg-agent should guess pinentry's full path (using $PATH) if `pinentry-program` does not supply a full path: Bug Report.

GnuPG invokes its components always with their absolute file name. We want to mitigate attacks where malware creates a pinentry wrapper somewhere in an improper set PATH.
