I am not familiar with BSD but this should apply to BSD installations of GnuPG
as well.

gpg -e -r NAME test.txt

where NAME is the user id of the recipient's key.

If you want to encrypt for uid NAME and explicitly hide a given recipient's
keyID when sending the message you may use the -R option.

Well, that's what the man page tells us, IIUC.
