GPG needs you to tell it which keys are ultimately trusted (i.e. your
own keys).  Do "gpg --edit (thekey)" enter "trust", and set the trust
to "ultimate".  Repeat for each of your keys.

There is a script ("convert-from-106") that comes in the tools
directory of the GPG distribution that automates all this.  Just run
that and it will do all the work for you.
