Nope.  We use or will use SQLite also at other places and thus a generic
solution would be the way to go.  However, as of now you can build GnuPG
without SQLite and thus I don't see why we should add backward
compatibility for a niche OS.

As a workaround you could link statically to a decent SQLite version.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
