Installing new gpg versions

Well, I cannot speak about "defaults", but on my system the umask is set to 027 when I log on because I am not a "privileged user" (assigned by the /etc/profile script).  I'm sure this is something special our sometimes over-zealous security people have deemed useful.

I was just thinking a note about this would be useful in the INSTALL doc, but maybe it's not a big deal.

Thanks much on confirming that I need to delete that target directory!

... or 022, depending on who you ask. Either one should have worked for 
your purpose.
