No.  You never launch these directly: GnuPG launches them -- and GnuPG
knows where they're located.

Well, the GnuPG you have in /usr/local no longer needs them -- but it's
possible other software you have in /usr/local relies on it, so I'd
suggest keeping them until/unless you know for a fact nothing else needs it.

Don't need to worry about them.  I'd keep them, myself, but if you
delete them it won't impair GnuPG's functioning.
