Actually I meant copying over the m4 GPGME macro and adding it to Wget's
repository, so that it would be available straight after cloning (I have
seen some projects including gpgme.m4 in their repositories to resolve
the problem).
Or maybe we could provide some kind of wrapper that would call the
proper GPGME macro if it is defined elsewhere, and otherwise do nothing.
(Not sure how to do that though.)

I kind of agree with that. But we should probably not change the default
behaviour of previous versions. How about this:
$ wget

Would that work for you? (Allowing to provide an URL instead of local
file to the input-metalink option.)
