That's all there is too it. gnupg.org distros all live in one directory.
Nullify build have directories for Doc, Lib, and Locale files. unzip to
a temp folder and drag to the proper new home. Backup *.gpg and gpg.conf
files just to be safe.

I also take the time to export the trustdb, do the --update-trustdb
maintenance; and run gpg --rebuild-keydb-caches a couple times.
