Aha, I asked some weeks ago about how to import my pgp 2.6 to gpg,
because following the rules mentioned above
gpg --import private.pgp
and the alike did NOT work, that is I used the imported key and tried
to send myself a message using enigmail and failed,
the reason seems to be IDEA (well you can compile IDEA support into
gpg however this is not standard.)
See the messages:

Where Werner advice to empty the pass-phrase in pgp2.6 import it to gpg
and then introduce a pass-phrase.
So I conclude from that that a pgp2.6 with IDEA protected pass-phrase
is NOT the same as the imported key into gpg, where the pass phrase is
protected by other algorithm.
