Porting gnupg to Mac OS X: Problem:"gpg: fatal: idea encryption (0) failed"

I am currently porting gnupg to Mac OS X/Darwin. After some trouble I was finally successful in getting  the support for dynamically loaded modules to work!

Trying to decrypt a pgp2.6-generated message using the unsupported idea module leads to the following message:

> gpg: NOTE: cipher algorithm 1 not found in preferences 
> gpg: fatal: idea encryption (0) failed 
> secmem usage: 2016/2816 bytes in 4/9 blocks of pool 2976/16384 

What went wrong? Does this indicated an error in porting gnupg to Mac OS X or has this problem another cause?

Thanks for any help,
