Thanks for trying it out and finding these problems, Eike!

I added this program name because it was named that way on Arch Linux. 
On Arch, at least, the program is the same as Debian: a perl script. 
I'd be interested to see what the Fedora version looks like.

If I can't figure it out, I'll just remove the check for 'docbook2texi' 
for this release and try to take a closer look at Fedora in the next

I've pushed a new branch kevin/gpgme-build-fix which grabs the most 
recent versions of gpgme.m4 and gpg-error.m4 from gpgme release 1.13.0. 
It adds a call to AM_PATH_GPG_ERROR(1.33), and appends $(GPG_ERROR_LIBS) 
to the library list.

Please give this a try and let me know if it works okay.

If not, then I'l merge your fix, but I'd rather stick with the GPGME 
versions if possible.

Thank you!
