README goofs

This is minor, but it's going to itch until I say something:

The README specifies a md5 checksum, but you publish a SHA1 checksum.

The README also specifies a gzipped tarball, but you have a bzipped

Patch (such as it is) attached.

     2) Unpack the tarball.  With GNU tar you can do it this way:
-       "tar xzvf gnupg-x.y.z.tar.gz"
+       "tar xyvf gnupg-x.y.z.tar.bz2"

        This should yield an output _similar_ to this:

        Now check that this checksum is _exactly_ the same as the one
        published via the announcement list and probably via Usenet.
