I looked at doing a port last year.  However, gnupg seems to have been
written solely with a command line interface in mind, just like PGP.  At
first glance, major surgery seemed to be required to turn it into an event
driven GUI app.  I recoiled in fear, and worked on other things.

I've heard rumblings about a lib version that may ease a port to Mac OS
(and Windows), but haven't had time to keep up with the list lately.
