[neomutt-users] Using pgpewrap with Nix-Install

Hi all,

I have a rather specific question regarding mail encryption but I hope 
someone can help me fixing this.

I am a macOS user (10.14) and installed neomutt using the Nix package 
manager. Before, I was using the homebrew version for many years. Using 
the gpg.rc file provided in the neomutt repository, the pgpewrap binary  
is required for encrypting mails. In the past I could simply point the 
path for this binary to the Homebrew Cellar (a path in /usr/local where 
everything homebrew-related lives). After switching to Nix however, I am 
asking myself if there is any better solution for this, as I would now 
have to point to a path in the nix store, which feels even more fragile 
than linking to internal brew folders as it could change at any time.

Is there a better solution for this? How do fellow nix(OS)-Users solve
