Libgcrypt does not implement any protocol; it provides building blocks
which other software can use to implement a protocol or data format.

gpgme supports the S/MIME and the OpenPGP protocol. Thus you need to
make keys compliant with these protocol specifications. Libgcrypt can't
do that - gpg or gpgsm are examples of software which can do that.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
