The post-install script runs extra steps unless the DESTDIR env variable is set. For example: https://github.com/elementary/sideload/blob/master/meson/post_install.py#L9
OK. Weird, but works. :-)

At least for GnuPG, substituting all references to 'gpg' with
(string-append gnupg "/bin/gpg") should work. I guess something similar
will work for GPGME.

Yes, learning to ignore useless warnings is an important packaging

Applied! I moved 'glib', 'libgee', and 'libxml2' to inputs because they
were referenced by the io.elementary.sideload binary. Let me know if
you think this was wrong.
Will you submit updated patches for the other two in this series too?
