I found the problem. In full compliance with the OpenPGP specs GPG uses
v4 signatures by default. GPG has an option to force it to use v3
signatures. man gpg says:
OpenPGP states that an implementation should
generate v4 signatures but PGP 5.x recognizes v4
signatures only on key material. This option
forces v3 signatures for signatures on data.
Obviously PGP 6.5.8 also can't handle v4 signatures.
Add 'force-v3-sigs' to your ~/.gnupg/options file.
