In the company I'm working for I can't use anymore a Virtual Machine
with FreeBSD and had to elect between Win and a Macbook Pro. No need to
discuss this further.

I'm actively used to use GnuPG on all my private FreeBSD and L5 mobile
devices. Can I use GnuPG (and passwordstore, the latter is only a shell
script) on Mac? The shell looks nearly like a normal Linux system
(behind a colorful desktop) and the kernel is this:

$ uname -a
Darwin APITZM-1MBPOH 21.6.0 Darwin Kernel Version 21.6.0: Mon Aug 22 20:20:07 PDT 2022; root:xnu-8020.140.49~2/RELEASE_ARM64_T8110 arm64

also a compiler seems to be installed:

$ gcc -v
Apple clang version 14.0.0 (clang-1400.0.29.102)
Target: arm64-apple-darwin21.6.0
Thread model: posix
InstalledDir: /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/usr/bin

Any hints are welcome. Thanks
