A regular 1.4.7, with source code downloaded from gnupg.org, signature
downloaded from same site, verified OK.
Compiled (as I always do) with Apple's Developers Tools that is a part
(optional install) of the original MacOS 10.4.*, code-named Tiger.
The only thing I did, was to cp idea.c to cipher, and then ./configure,
make and make install. Everything flowed from start to end.
$ gpg --version

Tested with the key block that is embedded in Alexander Feigl's email to
the gnupg-users list, as per the URL you mentioned above.

I hope someone will pick up the hint, I'm taking the liberty of
cross-posting to macgpg-users.
