The gnupg-pkcs11 patches /may/ do what you want; it enables the use
of PKCS#11 tokens with gnupg. But I haven't haven't had chance to look
into it in detail yet.
Also, I am in the process of starting an "open openpgp" implementation
and one of the goals is to support 4096 bit RSA. See  to join the
mailing list and read the archives.
