PGP 8.1 message

I am having some problems with messages and keys created/encrypted
using PGP 8.1. I was, for example, sent a public key block exported
from PGP 8.1 and gnupg refused to import that key into my keyring,
giving me the message "gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found". I had to
install PGP 9.0, import the keys into that, export them from PGP 9.0
and then was able to import it into gnupg.

Similarly, for the message sent by the same user, I got an error
saying "gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.gpg: decrypt_message failed:
eof" when I tried to decrypt a text file he had sent to me containt an
ASCII-armored PGP 8.1 message.

I'm running GNUPG 1.4.1 on Mac OS X.

Appreciate the help...
