Borland Pascal & C long ago had a function which allowed a program to
find itself on disk and work with that information.  I dont know if GCC
has such a function.  Running off CD would be the best of all worlds for
GNUPG with a directory structure something like:


           o                     _______________________________
         o      _____            |     CWSIV_HOME1@JUNO.COM    |

     >   (________|__|_[_________]_|___________________________|
    _/oo OOOOO oo`  ooo   ooo  'o!o!o                 o!o!o`
