The new gpgme builds fine with pth. Sticky Bit, update your pth package at first, please.

Couple of gpgme-based applications builds and run like a charm.
I'll be test kde4.2 apps as soon as possible.

kdepim[libs]42 will use additional functionality if find gpgme-pth.
However, pth is needed for many apps, so why don't use it? 
At this time, pth is still more used thread library then ptreads.
