All GnuPG components aim to be portable over all Unices and thus the
compiler should never matter.  The system(3) call in the test suite is
actually a shortcut to avoid adding a lot of other code and is not a
security problem because we don't use setuid and we control all

I am also sure that there is a way to keep on using system(3) because
this API is part of ISO C.
