FWIW, RFC-1991 is not a complete specification of PGP-2. You can't
implement a compatible version based on this info. You also need to
look into the PGP-2 documentation and finally you need to be able to
send questions to another person who can provide an answer based on the
PGP-2 source code (which is public but due copyright reasons one
better does not do it by oneself).
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
