Okay, thanks. I'll read up on this.

Indeed, I did not see this the first time. Thanks, I'll address
questions I might have in the future to gnupg-devel.

We solved the packaging of gnupg-2.1.14 now to let gpgscm run and not
package it on its own like I first intended. Many packages depend on
this, so the updates did not make it into the recent 0.11 release image
of GuixSD and guix, but they are going to be built soon.
