Help adding the idea extension...

Thanks for the reply Dave,
By saying "won't work" I was meaning IDEA dosen't appear under
ciphers when gpg --version is run. with or without (only in the
.gnupg.conf file) the command line --load-extension. I'm thinking it
must be a SCO problem but wanted to hear from the list to see if anyone
else had had a problem.
Here is the output:
OK oper> gpg --load-extension /u/oper/.gnupg/idea --version
gpg (GnuPG) 1.2.3

I really wanted to avoid rerunning configure and recompiling. We ran
into problems with the assembler and the mpi files.
again thanks for the quick reply.
