The gpgsplit tool is missing from this package(?).

It is located in tools/gpgsplit.c in the source tarball.

Package version:
2.1.1-1

Why is it not compiled and installed by default?

Don't know. I just searched for it and stumbled over the debian and ubuntu gnupg packages that include gpgsplit e.g. http://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty-updates/amd64/gnupg/filelist

In the gnupg-2.1.1 source tarball, the file tools/Makefile.am goes:

if !HAVE_W32CE_SYSTEM
bin_PROGRAMS += gpgkey2ssh ${gpgtar}
endif

and then later

if !HAVE_W32CE_SYSTEM
noinst_PROGRAMS = clean-sat mk-tdata make-dns-cert gpgsplit
endif

So apparently gpgtar deserved to be installed on non-Windows systems but not gpgsplit. Could you explain why we would want to install gpgsplit on Linux systems? Better yet, could you ask upstream to do this by default?

gpgsplit is needed to devide a gpg packet into all its parts. I do not think we need it on every linux system, but it is quite helpful and if we do not integrate into the gnupg package we may create a gnupg-tools package to provide this tools.

In our official package I am reluctant to bundle binaries that upstream choses not to install by default. However, you are of course free to make a gnupg-tools package and submit it to the AUR.
