cd to directory where your PGP keyring files are located:
gpg --import secring.skr
gpg --import pubring.pkr
then for each key /pair/, ('gpg --list-secret-keys' should have some
output now.) you'll need to set the key pair to Ulimate trust, this is
analogous to PGP's 'Implicit Trust' Setting:
gpg --edit-key 0xDecafBad trust
5 <-- '5' for ultimate
y <-- 'y'es REALLY do it
save <-- save chnages and exit

default-key is best set in your gpg.conf file. Ditto comment, keyserver,
keyserver-options, default-recipient-self, /permanent/ encrypt-to
