gpg-agent crashes under some circumstances due to the use of clock_gettime which is not available on macOS 10.11

Reported by Luke Le | March 30th, 2018 @ 08:09 PM | in 2.2.7 (closed)

Steps to reproduce

1.) Remove .gnupg folder

rm -rf ~/.gnupg

2.) Run "gpg -K" to have the .gnupg folder recreated

gpg -K

3.) Remove ~/.gnupg/pubring.kbx

rm ~/.gnupg/pubring.kbx

4.) Create a symlink for ~/.gnupg/pubring.kbx which points to nowhere

cd ~/.gnupg
ln -s test ~/.gnupg/pubring.kbx

5.) Try to symmetrically encrypt some text

echo "Test" | gpg --symmetric

6.) gpg-agent will crash

Only affects macOS < 10.13
