Weird trust problem

Hash: SHA1

Using gnupg 1.0.1 on a FreeBSD system.   I've run into a stumper of a
trust problem, and I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on it.

I'm going to encrypt a message to a guy whose public key I have, and I've
signed said public key.  But when I go to encrypt the message, I get the
following warning:

- -------
Could not find a valid trust path to the key.  Let's see whether we
can assign some missing owner trust values.

No certificates with undefined trust found.

2048g/095F8404 1998-07-17 "SkilTech <>"
             Fingerprint: 56BA 6FE0 DFB5 39CF C08A  078C 13D5 0E1C 095F

             It is NOT certain that the key belongs to its owner.
             If you *really* know what you are doing, you may answer
             the next question with yes

             Use this key anyway?

However, I've personally signed that key, as can be seen below:

I'm stumped as to why it's complaining about the validity of the key.  If
anyone could help out, I'd appreciate it.
