No. The hard dependency is on GnuPG 1 or GnuPG 2. AFAIK for both, some
non-ancient versions are required.

At the moment, for me it is even the case, that under Debian testing
(password-store 1.6.3, GnuPG 2.0.26, GnuPG 1.4.18), because of some
poorly documented changes in GnuPG 2 that break compatibility with old
keys, some feature of the password store commands (esp. gpg init) do
indeed work with the version 1 of GnuPG /only/ :-(
