Sorry, I was not clear enough in my description.
I created a main key first (tested with RSA main key and also with a
couple of the ECC curves). Then I added subkeys via the --edit-key
dialogue (addkey). (In that dialogue there is an option 12.) I can ask
GnuPG to generate a curve 25519 encryption subkey. But (sub)key
generation fails. However, it will generate a curve 25519 signing

I see curve 25519 if I go via option 11 at that point. It can be
selected and will create a main key.
