IIRC, the source to PGP is available, but only for "peer review"
purposes. The license prohibits compiling your own PGP binaries. I might
be wrong. It's been a long time since I've read the license.

I played with the PGP Desktop trials a while ago, and I have to say that
it was a whole lot easier to use than GPG. I don't think I'd encourage
people to use PGP, though.
