It sounds like your original gpg installation was in /usr.  The source
distribution installs in /usr/local by default.  Which sort of system
is it - if it is something with some notion of package management
(Redhat, Debian, etc.) you can probably just delete the old 1.0.6
package and have it all go away at once.  That will leave you with
only the 1.2.0 install.
