Thanks for pointing this out!

I come to the conclusion after reading all the replies from this thread
that i will return to pure GnuPG usage, instead of using an email / Usenet
client with add-ons. I already found a script for PGP/MIME so that i can
decrypt/verify a message send to me when using GnuPG in command-line

Another thing i will do in the future, which i haven't read in popular 
is that once checking the hash/sig of the provided package i will also hash
the binaries after unpacking and print them out on a piece of paper, so 
that i
can frequently check the values.
