Sid and thus tetsing is seriously broken in regard to libpth.  There
are changes in 2.0.7 which I don't understand.  They have changed the
API without renaming the library.  libpth does now do soft mapping of
all system calls (like #define write pth_write) by default.  I can't
see why they did this change.

A workaround is to put


into config.h

I do not want to change this in GnuPG as it is Debian's fault.  The
maintainer has not yet answered so I consider filing an RC bug.
