there is a simple workaround that preserves end-of-line whitespace 

just armor the file

(add '-a' before the '-r' of your encryption command,
or before '-u' if you are only signing)

i have tested this with an older version of pgp
(i don't like or use 9.x)
and the blank spaces were preserved

i used gnupg 1.4.7
but i believe the same is probably true for any of the earlier 
versions i have tried, back to 1.0x
