in the master branch there is the commit
from September 2017 for configure.ac that allows to circumvent a
huge performance regression with gnupg v2 keys in some contexts.
This commit is not in stable though.
I am not familiar with the process how commits get selected for
inclusion into the stable branch. Is there a chance that it will
make it into gnupg stable anytime soon?
To recall: This issue applies to contexts like gnupg being called
internally by postgresql where there is no agent, so the security
calibration / delay of 100 MESC is applied to every single
decryption call. Refer to my original posting and the explanation
by Werner Koch, proposing to reduce MSEC at compile time:
