We need to see something a little more informative than "problem
getting the idea extension to work" ;)
What happens when you do "gpg --load-extension /path/to/idea -v --version" ?
I don't know if SCO has some problems with dynamically loaded code.
If it does, then --load-extension won't work. You could take the
idea.c file and drop it into the GnuPG source cipher/ directory.
Re-run ./configure, rebuild GnuPG, and you'll have IDEA built-in.
