Since it seems my original message did not arrive, I resend it and
apologise if it has been double posted.
As a long term user of pgp.2.6.3 I want to switch to gnupgp, but would
prefer to continue using my pgp key. So I looked up the information
and followed the steps indicated. One thing remains unclear to me: it
concerns IDEA. As I understand it I have to compile idea.c (and maybe
rsa.c or rsaref.c) in order to use my key.
However does this mean that _every_ user who will use my public key,
should do the *same*? I tried to send myself a message using my
imported pgp key, with gnupg. However that failed since the modules
have yet not be complied. But that seems to me that every user who
want to communicate with me using that public key, should do the same,
is this right? (If so I will not use my pgp key since I will expect
that most gnupgp users I know are not willing or able to do this
