[Rpm-maint] [rpm-software-management/rpm] Change the default crypto implementation to libgcrypt (from NSS) (#832)

libgcrypt is a much more straightforward and lightweight as a library,
doesn't come with a massive runtime library of its own, runtime which
messes with SIGPIPE and all, has a nice clearly compatible license (LGPL)
and is somewhat faster than NSS. What's not to like?

Change the default and add relevant documentation to INSTALL. Drop
the hopefully now unnecessary override from distcheck flags, and
switch CI over too.
