% I've upgraded to GPG 1.0.7 but know I get two errors
% 1.)
% gpg: WARNING: --honor-http-proxy is a deprecated option.
% gpg: please use "--keyserver-options honor-http-proxy" instead
% Any idea how how to fix it?

Do what it says, of course :-)  You've probably specified the --honor...
bit in your .gnupg/options file, so change it in there.  And read the
docs for the new release; that's by no means the biggest of changes.

% 2.)
% gpg: Warning: using insecure memory!
% This one has to do something with installing the package as suid (root),
% to lock memory pages when typing the passphrase; but the installation
% instruction doesn't go into detail on how to do it.

If you have root permission and gpg is installed in, say, /usr/local/bin
then you want to do something like

  % su
  Password: <type_root_password_here>
  # chown root /usr/local/bin/gpg
  # chmod 04755 /usr/local/bin/gpg
  # exit
  % exit

to become root, change the ownership of the gpg binary, change the
permissions (add that suid part), and then exit.
