Hello Everyone,

I dutifully did ./configure, make, sudo make install for gunupg-2.0.21 
after finally doing same for all its dependencies and then ran 
/usr/local/lib/gpg2 --expert --gen-key

and all I got was this:

newton at newton-desktop:~/gpg2_0_21/gnupg-2.0.21$ /usr/local/bin/gpg2 
--expert --gen-key

Shouldn't I be seeing 1 or more ECC choices?

Was I supposed to supply some special arguments to ./configure ?
