A few more questions:
I imagine I need to create these symbolic links:
ln -s /opt/app/gnupg-1.4.11/bin/gpg /usr/local/bin/gpg
ln -s /opt/app/gnupg-1.4.11/bin/gpg-zip /usr/local/bin/gpg-zip
ln -s /opt/app/gnupg-1.4.11/bin/gpgsplit /usr/local/bin/gpgsplit
ln -s /opt/app/gnupg-1.4.11/bin/gpgv /usr/local/bin/gpgv
But should I also create these?
ln -s /opt/app/gnupg-1.4.11/libexec/gnupg /usr/local/libexec/gnupg
ln -s /opt/app/gnupg-1.4.11/share/gnupg /usr/local/share/gnupg
And what about these existing files (copies of which are in /usr/local today):
And finally, what about these (which do not exist in /usr/local/share today):
I appreciate the help!
BTW - Although I have rarely posted to this list, it is one of the most interesting discussion groups I follow. I've been reading it for about five years (since I first installed gpg) and although most of the conversation is way over my head, I learn something new almost every day.

No forgiveness necessary. Simple, straightforward questions are always

It's hard to say definitively without looking at your particular system.
That said, speaking generally this will work fine.
