The use of `=3D' in place of a `=' is characteristic of MIME's
quoted-printable transfer encoding.
In short, the ascii-armoured key was mangled by the sender's MUA, but
not de-mangled by yours.
Since pgp to have accepted it, pgp must have code to recognize
ascii-armour which has been converted to quoted-printable and
to decode it on input. Adding such code to gpg ought to be
trivial. But, since I'm stuck here behind the ITAR-curtain 
I won't include a patch herein.
 Yes, I know it isn't ITAR anymore, but ITAR-curtain sounds better :)
