I defer to David Shaw as the definitive expert on this, but I did just 
this for a customer earlier this year. The problem is that full support 
of a non-PGP Corporation LDAP server has not yet been integrated into a 
production release of GnuPG. I was able to modify the schema of our 
iPlanet/SunONE LDAP server and get the commercial PGP client to work with 
it fine, but not so to this point with GnuPG.

Good luck.
