GnuPG places this into `libexec` rather than `bin` or `sbin`.  I don't
mess with those relative paths.  I preserve the upstream package's idea
of where things should go, rather than distribution guidelines.  Using
an `/opt/` namespace makes this something I'm willing to defend: I
package the upstream with as few changes as possible.

Thus:  /opt/gnupg/libexec/gpg-wks-client
