I am still stuck on this. Is my understanding correct that there is
currently no support for linking gpgme directly to libgcrypt without
the need for finding and calling gpg executables at runtime? All I
really need is some bindings to verify pgp signatures, but it is
surprisingly difficult to implement this using only libgcrypt.
