Create a key without subkey?

How do I generate an encryption key with gnupg? I tried some options
but it always generates me a sign-only key with an encryption subkey.
I need to receive encrypted financial data from a system that uses
PGP5. When I send in my key to that system it outputs me the
Key ring: 'eike at example.com'
Type Bits KeyID Created Expires Algorithm Use
pub 1024 0xAF7B19C4 2006-09-25 ---------- DSS Sign only
sub 2048 0x508FA9D7 2006-09-25 ---------- Diffie-Hellman
uid Eike Herzbach <eike at example.com>
Later when the system tries to send me an encrypted message it fails
and says that it can't encrypt with a Sign-only key. (I guess it is
not able to use the subkey and only sees the 'outer' key)
Is there a way to fix this in GnuPG? Or do I have to get PGP5 to
generate such a key?
