All data used by gpg and gpgsm is stored in a platform independent
format.  For example, moving your GnuPG home directory from a 64bit big
endian Unix to a 32 bit Windows box will not lead to any problems.

Data (signed or encrypted files) as created by gpg is per OpenPGP specs
also platform neutral.  When using the armored format the line endings
are created as required by the platform; however all kind of line
endings are accepted by gpg.
