Package: parcimonie
Version: 0.10.2-1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Hi there,

Ever since gnupg 2.1 was set to be the main "gpg" command in sid, parcimonie has been unable to do its bidding.

>From the process list, we can see the following:

gabster   6219  0.1  1.2 129352 48700 pts/1    S+   15:07   0:00      \_ /usr/bin/perl /usr/bin/parcimonie --with-dbus
gabster   6220  0.0  0.0      0     0 pts/1    Z+   15:07   0:00          \_ [gpg] <defunct>

and it just hangs there.

If I call the command manually I get the following output:

$ /usr/bin/parcimonie --with-dbus
gpgconf: warning: can not open list file /home/gabster/.gnupg/dirmngr_ldapservers.conf: No such file or directory
dirmngr:Key Acquirer:/usr/bin/dirmngr:1:1:
Can't exec "gpg2": No such file or directory at /usr/share/perl5/GnuPG/Interface.pm line 301.
exec() error: No such file or directory at /usr/share/perl5/GnuPG/Interface.pm line 301.
No public key was found. at /usr/share/perl5/App/Parcimonie/Daemon.pm line 420.

So apparently it's trying to call a gpg2 binary which doesn't exist anymore:

$ find /usr/bin/ -name gpg\*

So I guess we either need to call "gpg" directly or somehow get the "gpg2"
alias to come back. Or maybe there's an even better solution that I'm not
thinking about since I don't know much about the code base and used libraries.
