Answerung myself :-) after having read some chapters in the libgcrypt manual, I
guess, in order to work with GnuPG, haveged would have to be configured in a
similar way as, for instance, the egd (1). Without doing so, it would probably
be ignored by GnuPG.
(1) #when compiling, by adding
--enable-static-rnd=egd (to ./configure)
#when using a pre-compiled version that has a different configuration, by using
#a loadable extension module, adding
#to the ~/.gnupg/options file, or by typing
#on the command line while GnuPG is running
