Not directly.  The usual advise I give is to set a different home
directory (gpgme_set_engine_info) and put an appropriate gpg.conf file
into this directory.  There is also an API in GPGME which allows to
modify certain settings in the configuration files; but this is just an
easy way to edit the conf files.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
