Recursive Encryption

I'd use tar to create the archive and then gnupg to encrypt it.  I haven't
thought about it but you might be able to pipe the output from tar to gnupg
(especially if you use named pipes).

	Sorry for sending a blank response to the list. I hit the wrong
key in my mail reader. As penance, I read through the documentation, and I
don't think there is a way using gpg alone; the way I'd do it would be to
put all the directories into an archive, and then to encrypt the archive.
