(*This will change in future versions, i.e., GnuPG 2.1 *)
Import the keyring files in their entirety:
gpg --import /path/to/secring.pgp
gpg --import-options import-local-sigs --import /path/to/pubring.pgp
You may omit '--import-options import-local-sigs' if local signatures haven't
been used when signing keys.
Because PGP and GnuPG store trust differently, you will need to use
'gpg --edit-key <keyID> trust' to set your key pairs (you have both pub & sec
parts) to what GnuPG calls Ultimate trust (PGP calls this Implicit trust).
Run 'gpg --check-trustdb' after setting the trust values.
