Thanks David for your advice. I have moved the idea file to the default 
lib directory but i'm still getting "protection algorithm 1 is not 
supported" error. I chmod the file to -rwxr-xr-x, but not the group and 
owner, which is me as an standard admin user on mac os x. should the 
owner be root? if the idea file loads correctly, would gpg --version 
report the extra cipher supported?
