Running passmenu via dmenu doesn't work because without optional packages, pinentry only supports pinentry-curses and pinentry-tty, but none of the graphical versions.
In particular it doesn't support pinentry-gtk2 which seems to be the default for gpg. Would it make sense to list the optional dependencies from pinentry also as optional dependencies for pass?

gcr (optional) - gnome3 backend
gtk2 (optional) - gtk2 backend
qt5-base (optional) - qt backend

At least it took me a little while to figure out why passmenu didn't work, maybe listing them would make it easier if someone else runs into the same problem.
This task depends upon
