You say that as if there were a problem with the maint.mk rule.
The rule relies on the existence of a program named "gpgv".  If your
distribution or packaging tool chooses to call that binary gpgv2, I
encourage you simply to create (early in your path) a symlink mapping
the version-dependent name to the "right" one.  Making the names of
such tools depend on the package version is not sustainable, and I'm
reluctant to make the rule accommodate it.
