Just a thought.  Have you installed build-essential?

Ubuntu doesn't install many tools to compile from source code with the 
base install, so you have to do that yourself.  You might trying to 
change your sources.list to the dapper repositories, and then doing:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Which will upgrade your distro to Ubuntu 6.06 and then other tools will 
be available to you.  The version I believe that is in the dapper 
repositories is gnupg 1.4.2, which may be sufficient for your needs.

But if you want to compile from scratch you will still have to install 

This is one of the reasons I am using MEPIS 6.0.  It uses the dapper 
repositories but it installs much more easily and has facilities to 
compile source from the base install.  Its default desktop is KDE, but 
you can easily change that if you're a Gnome user
