Did some digging as I hadn't heard of this but I wanted to be sure,
and it looks like it goes back to

I don't see a reference to a bug there so I can't check a distro
in particular, but gpgme hasn't depended on KDE libs for a long while,
so I think we're good as-is to just drop it.

(I've also not seen any workarounds like this in other projects).
