Uhm the libexec thing is on me.
gpg-wks-client and gpg-wks-server were very low level at first and only 
intended to be used by higher level applications. So I found libexec to be the 
right place.

gpg-wks-client gained more usefulness. So I now think that we should install 
it to /usr/bin. I guess we will change that in master for GnuPG 2.3.

On Windows the gpg-wks-client is already installed under bin and in the PATH.
