You actually have the GnuPG signature, this is good for checking
gnupg-1.0.0.tar.gz.asc, for example.

The redhat RPM will use a redhat signature (avialable on their
website/ftp site), you need to add that key, and then it should

Also make sure that RPM knows how to use GPG (eg, does it know the
path there, or is it still looking for PGP).

Hope that helps,
