This could be a silly question, but just to check:  Did you also
install libssl-dev, libgpgme11-dev etc?  You need the -dev variants of
the library packages when compiling something from source using them.

The outputs from configure scripts are always a little misleading about
what actually needs to be installed:  When it says "OpenSSL", it
really means "libssl-dev", and so on.
