I'm having a problem retrieving keys from keyservers with this release.
With the default configuration, the keyserver helper programs die with a
message that they can't find the cygwin1.dll.

The problem is that by default, gnupg sets the PATH to /usr/sbin/gnupg
when it invokes these tools. The helper programs then die because that
path does not include /bin.

I can solve this problem by adding

   exec-path /bin

to my ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf file.

Alternatively, I can solve it by patching g10/Makefile.in to include
$(bindir) in the default path for invoking tools. A patch to do this is
