old pgp2.6x keys imported in gpg (compile pgp 2.6)

I have a problem to import my secret key into a iOS app called iPGmail.

The problem is that of course the key is password protected and the app
seem to have difficulties with the password. 

So I just deleted the password and then can import the secret key, but I
don't like this possibility and so I deleted my key.

The cipher for the key protection is CAST5

However the key was originally generated with pgp 2.6.2 more than 10
years ago (yes I know it is only 1024 bit long and should not be used
anymore), but could it be that such a key has some incompatibilities
with RFC 4880??

I just tried to compile old 2.62 on kubuntu 10.04 but failed, does
anybody has a suggestion?
