thanks for the feedback.

What version of GnuPG are you using as backend?

We fixed a bug in GnuPG recently to properly report a notation flag, and
tightened the test case accordingly.  To support older versions of
GnuPG, the test tries to detect that an older version is used, but that
test might fail for some reason.

Surely gentoo can produce several binary packages from one source

We are in fact using the python tools to build the bindings.  The checks
in configure merely try to detect which versions are available, and if
everything is in place to produce python modules with SWIG.

Gladly.  Can you please be more specific how that would look like?
