Setting up a chroot or jail is a complex operation and adding something
to rc.local is not different than to make sure the required devices and
tools are all accessible.  Think /dev/random, /etc/hosts etc.

That is right.  However, we are talking about GnuPG's test suite, aren't

For other software using

  GNUPGHOME=/tmp/$mydir gpg-agent --daemon testshell

is suitable approach.
