err = gpgme_set_engine_info (GPGME_PROTOCOL_OpenPGP,
That is you can't give the location of a keyring but you need top
provide another homedir. The keyring is a detail of the gpg and paying
with it should in general be avoided. Note that 2.1 uses by default the
faster keybox and shares that with gpgsm.

First import that key and the use it.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
