just tried this on a fresh N9, indeed a *huge* improvement over last time I 
installed it, great job! :)

I only found one issue, dirmngr depends on adduser, which seems to be only 
available in the rzr repo. So, I had to manually download and install that.

Apart from that I only spotted another minor thing that could be improved, the 
*-pth versions of gpgme are not used if the *-pthread version is available 
IIRC, so we could skip a few small packages there.
