Your system does not support anonymous mmapping and because there
exists no device /dev/zero, the usual trick to overcome this can't be
done. /dev/zero is a device which yields an endless stream of binary
Anyway, gpg uses standard malloc as a fallback and so there is no
problem, except for the noisy messages.

Don't do this, but add a line "no-secmem-warning" into ~/.gnupg/gpg.cong.
