My knowledge of QNX is a bit rusty since I worked on it in the 80ies.
IIRC, it is for a long time now a standard Unix system and thus there
should be no major problems to port GnuPG to QNX.

Our build environment is designed to be run on a Unix system and for
other platforms we prefer to cross-compile.  Native building does only
require standard Unix tools along with an C-90 compiler with a few C99

Porting to a new platform always involves evaluating entropy sources for
the random number generator.  Our basic Unix entropy gathering code
supports QNX but it has probably not been checked in a long time and it
might be better to make use of system or CPU provided entropy sources.
