I have the same problem, but under FreeBSD 2.2.8-RELEASE 
with both 0.9.5 and in 0.9.6.

It compiles and runs with:
configure --disable-asm --disable-dynload

I can use my old keys, but I can't build a new key.
gpg complains there are 20 random bytes missing,
but I have no hint why, /dev/random works.

I added the contrib code for rsa and idea.
To test possible compatibility.
Signature works fine an i need it :)

The only problem I found is when I encrypt a message
to a pgp2 user, pgp2 can't decode it.

File is encrypted.  Secret key is required to read it.

You need a pass phrase to unlock your RSA secret key. 
Enter pass phrase: Pass phrase is good.  Just a moment....
Unsupported packet format - you need a newer version of PGP for this file.
