The name of the option should be --check-options (two leading dashes).
This is a quite new option to gpgconf, it was added on 2008-05-20 and
thus it is not available in the last released version of GnuPG (2.0.9)

I was not aware that KDE did a release requiring a non yet released
version of GnuPG.  This is probably becuase all developers used an SVN
snapshot.  Background: The new code was added in the course of a Windows
project to port KDE to Windows.  For Windows we use a snapshot of GnuPG.

I know that a GnuPG release is long overdue; I hope to get a release
candidate out in about 2 weeks.
