Dear Werner,

Could you give me (a gnupg newbie) clear instructions to compile the latest version for Ubuntu 16.04.3?
I’m running it as a VM in VirtualBox on my Mac.

Also I need you advice on my keys. Now I have rsa2048 but want to switch to rsa4096. What’s the best way of doing? Migrate or delete & create a new one? On the other hand I’ve noticed you have rsa2048. Maybe just keep rsa2048?

P.S. I have been happily using GnuPG 2.1.22 on my Mac, which I installed as binary. Now it’s time to move on with building my own like a pro) on Linux

    These are also not needed because the speedo Makefile will download and
    use ntbtls instead.
    Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
