I'm not familiar with all the short words being used all the
time. What is AIUI? "As I understand it"?

I think I forgot to add more descriptions above this patch and
the gnupg one.

It should've read:

This is a not very pleasant, but working hack
to enable building >=gnupg-2.1.14 without wasting much time on
having to built gpgscm in the gnupg package.  Whoever wants to
fix this may step forward and do it, I am done with this as I
need to focus on something else.
This is left intentionally with comments for other people to
improve in case we even use this. Else, someone can improve my
gnupg-2.1.14 patch and make the gpgscm patc obsolete.
