gpgconf: Make gpg/keyserver option available again
Open, HighPublic

Description

Kleopatra uses gpgconf for configuring gpg. gpg uses the keyserver option from gpg.conf if it is set, but gpg 2.3 does no longer make this option available via gpgconf. This makes it impossible for Kleopatra (or any other program relying on gpgconf for configuring the GnuPG suite) to change the OpenPGP keyserver if the keyserver option is set in gpg.conf.
