To Rich's point, that is why I finally spent some time and got a w32
version of gnupg to cross-compile via mingw32-cpd on one of my linux
boxes.  If you can't trust a 3rd party to supply the binary for your
platform, it makes sense to compile it yourself.  Trouble is, the w32
compile process for gnupg (1.07 or earlier versions) is not as
straightforward as I would like.  The compile session wasn't pretty but
the executable works fine and there are no extra "unsupported" ciphers

The patches I used included the HKP keyserver patch from nullify.org, a
configure patch to use wsock32 instead of ws2_32 (this was not in the
win32api I used and did not work when it was added), and a patch to
eliminate compile conflicts with strgutil.c. If anyone is interested I
can post a binary archive with my signature along with all the patches I
used to get the binary to compile.
