This sounds like a problem for your operating system and/or package
manager.  GnuPG has a chain of build dependencies which often makes it
difficult to just import directly from a single RPM.

If you were running a more recent operating system, you'd likely get
something from the GnuPG "modern" branch as well anyway.

Perhaps you want to ask your operating system vendor what their
recommendation is for "backports" of specific packages?
