If you encounter this error message when running gpgconf --list-options gpg:

gpgconf: Option gpgconf-gpg.conf, needed by backend GnuPG, is not absolute

please simply create an empty file /etc/gnupg/gpg.conf or wherever your global configuration files are expected ("gpgconf --list-dirs sysconfdir" shows it). Bug fixed with commit rG9f37d3e6f307a9
