While decrypting gpg ask you forthe passphrase if the secret key for
alfa at example.net is not available.

Nope. You use his public key to encrypt
He uses his secret key to decrypt
Alternativley you can use the passphrase to symmetrically encrypt and
decrypt. (That is what the option -c creates).
Please do not use gpg 1.4.8 but 1.4.9.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Auschnahme regelt ein Bundeschgesetz.
