Status of this bug?

Without this flag, gpg is marked PT_GNU_STACK RWE,
which causes it to not work in strict policy SELinux, 
if checkprotreq=0, and allow_gpg_execstack is false.

In other words, security would be improved if gpg was not
marked PT_GNU_STACK RWE, which can be accomplished by compiling
it with the option suggested - it was specifically modified upstream
for that purpose (gnupg bug 433).
