   I'd like to use gnupg as an external encryption program for a

   commercial products using gnupg as a third-party utility?

While I am not an authority on the implications of the GNU GPL, it depends
on "how" you care "calling" GnuPG.  If you are doing so via pipes or
command-line, you should be fine.  If you are doing so via library
invocations, you might need to take a different approach.
