Yeah, that is a problem.  Last weekend I tried to port it but I have a
lack of understanding how the Debian packages are supposed to work
together; in particular the kernel headers and the various system
libraries like libgeom etc.

I'd really like to help here because of the g13 tool of GnuPG which I
would like to have support for geli as backend.  I even pondered with
the idea of rewriting geli and to integrate it closley into g13.  The
lack of documentation in this area makes it not very easy.

Might be the easiest way until we have proper disk encryption support.

Will do that.  It is easier now because I converted the FAQ to orgmode
and it will not be distributed with GnuPG anymore.
