It is a build-time configuration option.  When you configure rpm, you
can do:

  ./configure --with-crypto=sequoia

to get the Sequoia backend.  --with-crypto defaults to libgcrypt,
which uses the internal OpenPGP implementation with libgcrypt.  (There
is also --with-crypto=openssl, which uses the internal OpenPGP
implementation with OpenSSL.)


This is not intended for users to be able to dynamically change the
OpenPGP backend.  In practice, I would expect that a distro would
standardize on a backend.
