Those files are not anymore used (see the otehr replies).  However to
figure out GnuPG's home directory you use the command

  gpgconf --list-dirs homedir

or leave out "homedir" and it lists all important file system locations.
This command works on all platforms.  "gpg --version" also prints the
home directory right before the list of supported algorithms.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
