If I understand your question, you're trying to set the *local* port  
number that GPG uses when binding the socket to talk to a keyserver?   
If so, no, GPG does not support that.  Why would you need such a  
thing?  I suspect that there are other ways of accomplishing whatever  
you're trying to do.
