This may be an instance, where if you don't know how- don't mess, but
I'll ask anyway.

Being inquisitive, and aware, I noted the new AES. I downloaded the c
code from ftp:gnuug.org [the link on the top page points to something
that doesn't exist], and compiled it. 

I put it in /usr/local/lib/gnupg along with tiger rndegd rndunix.

I tried to encrypt something with it, but it failed.
92 $ gpg -e --cipher-algo rijndael doc/josh_story.txt 
gpg: Warning: using insecure memory!
gpg: selected cipher algorithm is invalid

So can some kind sould point out what I did wrong, or where to read
about how one goes about incorporating a new cipher into the program?
