But there isn't such a file gpg.conf!

I've unzipped the file to c:\gnupg. Then
I opened the command-line and type gpg --gen-key with the
corresponding values.

The files pubring.gpg, secring.gpg, random_seed and trustdb.gpg
were created but no gpg.conf.

How can I create this file? Is this necessary?
