I don't think that it can be easily ported to plain MVS, frankly I
removed all initial support for it due to the advance of GNU/Linux
running on these machines.
It should be possible to build it in the POSIX substem - the problem
is that you need a source of random there - maybe a 4753 can be used

There used to be a PGP 2 port for MVS (iirc, by Harald Denker) but
this is pretty much outdated and not OpenPGP compatible.
Using an extra PC box for running GnuPG might be another choice for
