The latest GnuPG is in the Ubuntu repositories, last I checked.
Ubuntu's normally pretty good about keeping current.

With respect to GnuPG 2.1, it's still in progress and hasn't yet been
released.  As such, that means it's really not in a state where users
are expected to be able to compile it from scratch.  Once we get close
to an official 2.1 release I'm pretty sure the compilation process will
get easier.  :)

Have you considered turning this into a bash or Perl script?  Some
people on the list might find that very useful.
