D'oh! I always forget to check the PR database. I have no objections
to you maintaining the port. I would like you to consider some of the
changes I added though, especially downloading (and optionally
verifying) the .sig file, and making the gpg version optional. I don't
think we should force users to choose one version or the other, and in
my (admittedly minimal) testing gnupg version 1 works just fine. If
you need another copy of my patch, let me know.

Also, FYI there are a few gratuitous changes in your patch (moving
things from one line to another without changing anything) that should
generally be avoided without good reason.

Gabor, what's the status? I am happy to take this one on if you'd prefer.
