I am using Cygwin on W2K

1) Install Cygwin from
2) Open Bash Shell from Cygwin shortcut
3) Goto directory where GnuPG is unpacked
4) Type in "RANLIB=ranlib ./configure --with-included-gettext 
5) Type "make".
6) If the build fails on rndw32.c then type the following "(cd cipher ; 
gcc -g -O2 -Wall -I .. -I ../include -o rndw32.exe rndw32.c);make" -- 
this  is from my faulty memory so beware!
7) Type :make install"

You should then set up the registry keys. The program should be located 
in c:\cygwin\usr\local\bin\pgp.exe or similar

There are lots of variations on this so beware. The stuff above assumes 
you have installed egd as recommended on the web site -- I am not 
convinced it is working correctly on my system

Hope that helps
