See GnuPG's README file: It is signed by GnuPG and PGP can handle it.

The trick is, that you can't pipe the input to gpg becuase gpg is then
forced to used partial length headers - something pgp 2 doesn't know

  pgp --clearsign jnk

is allo need.

Hi all,

I have had excellent luck in making GPG (with the RSA and IDEA modules)
able to read PGP 2.6 signatures and encrypted messages. However, I have
never been able to get GPG to generate anything that PGP 2.6 will
understand :< The output from GPG works entirely fine with GPG itself.

Is there some manner of options that can make this work? I am using the

#cat jnk | gpg --rfc1991 --no-comment --clearsign > enc

And PGP gets as far as:

#cat enc | pgp

WARNING: Bad signature, doesn't match file contents!

Bad signature from user "Jason Gunthorpe <jgg@gpu.srv.ualberta.ca>".
Signature made 1999/05/12 02:57 GMT using 1024-bit key, key ID 35261E21

So it understand the packet but I presume it must be hashing differently?
