upstreams has an issue on this [1] but not much info there

from a discussion on arch's bbs an patch can be deduced:

 #hkp-cacert /path/to/CA/sks-keyservers.netCA.pem

+# dirmngr fails resolving when /etc/resolv.conf has no IPv4 nameserver
+# see upstream bug https://dev.gnupg.org/T2990

this will only help users that first start dirmngr. I asked upstream wether they see issues with this.

maintainer, please address this in time for stretch's release. Finding this workaround is quite unobvious, at least in some situations: for me Linux Containers would fail to build.
Also the error message is wrong, which certainly does not help.

Thanks and best regards, Ari
