Okay, the procedure as far as I know is:
	gpgsm --list-external-keys Boromir
     # select the fingerprint from the listing
	gpgsm --export b0:12:12:..... >boromirskey
	gpgsm --import boromirskey

(tested with gpgsm 2.0.7)

This is confusing, because 
	gpgsm --export Boromir
	will _not_ work, even when there is only one key found.
also this cannot be learned from the documentation and thus is obscure.
