Log Message:
Update to 1.9.17.

We are pleased to announce the availability of GnuPG 1.9.17 - the
branch of GnuPG featuring the S/MIME protocol.  You should consider
using GnuPG 1.9 if you want to use the GPG-AGENT or GPGSM.  The
GPG-AGENT is also helpful when using the stable GPG version 1.4 or if
you want to check out its ssh-agent replacement feature.

GnuPG 1.9 is the current development version of GnuPG.  Despite of
that, most parts (in particular GPG-AGENT and GPGSM) are considered
ready for production use. Please keep on using GnuPG 1.4.x for
OpenPGP; 1.9 and 1.4 may - and actually should - be installed

This release features a partly rewrite of the smartcard access code as
well as several bug fixes and enhancements.  Noteworthy things are:

 * gpg-connect-agent has now features to handle Assuan INQUIRE

 * Internal changes for OpenPGP cards. New Assuan command WRITEKEY.

 * GNU Pth is now a hard requirement.

 * [scdaemon] Support for OpenSC has been removed.  Instead a new and
   straightforward pkcs#15 modules has been written.  As of now it
   does allows only signing using TCOS cards but we are going to
   enhance it to match all the old capabilities.

 * [gpg-agent] New option --write-env-file and Assuan command

 * [gpg-agent] New option --default-cache-ttl-ssh to set the TTL for
   SSH passphrase caching independent from the other passphrases.

You will also need to get a new libassuan (our IPC library).
