Or he can compile idea.c as module, place it in GnuPG's lib directory 
(usually /usr/lib/gnupg or /usr/local/lib/gnupg, or something similar, 
depending on compilation options) and load it from gpg.conf 
(load-extension idea).  That way he doesn't need to recompile GnuPG, or 
think about it when upgrading GnuPG to newer version.  Instructions on 
how to compile it as module are included in idea.c source file.
