For the current GnuPG 2.1.18, this pair of patches looks reasonable to
me, and it should indeed solve builds in deeply-nested paths.

That said, i currently consider this a workaround to a bug that should
really be fixed in GnuPG itself, as i noted on gnupg-users:

  id:87k28rl6o8.fsf at alice.fifthhorseman.net

I'd love to not see this kind of workaround cruft pile up, because it
tends to cause problems in the future.  is there a way that we can mark
this sort of thing for fairly prompt removal once it's fixed upstream?
