Okay now I thing I understand it.

I have a Public and a Private Key in a GCRYP_SEXP struct and I have to 
transform it into a array of 3 MPI structs with the key_from_sexp function. 
(what is the difference to the sexp_to_key function from cipher/pubkey.c?)

But now I have the problem howto convert the data from (unsigned) char * into 
MPI structures and back?
