Did you check the md5 of the tarball? It should be
http://www.gnupg.org/(en)/download/index.html says. Use the md5sum
program to verify that the tarball is not corrupted.
It's possible that, if you downloaded it using a web browser, that the
browser uncompressed it for you, and you have a regular tar file. Use
the file command to tell you what type of file it is:
$ md5sum gnupg-1.2.2.tar.gz
$ file gnupg-1.2.2.tar.gz
gnupg-1.2.2.tar.gz: gzip compressed data, deflated, last modified: Thu May 1 10:39:14 2003, max compression, os: Unix
$ gunzip gnupg-1.2.2.tar.gz
$ file gnupg-1.2.2.tar
gnupg-1.2.2.tar: tar archive
