Since I just updated my ubuntu version of GunPG to 1.4.2, and noticed
this message to the list i thought I would upload the deb package I
put together. It's there if you want it basically :)

If you do use it, any feedback would be appreciated as to any problems
you might encounter. It worked fine for me, I only had to change the
path to the executable in enigmail to /usr/local/bin/gpg
Version: GnuPG v1.4.2 (GNU/Linux)
