On my Sarge system (KMail 1.7.2/KDE 3.3.2) and gpg 1.4.1, I have an entry in
# auto-key-retrieve = automatically fetch keys as needed from the keyserver
# when verifying signatures or when importing keys that

keyserver-options auto-key-retrieve verbose
Auto-retrieval works fine for me, and I think that entry in the gpg.conf file
does it. Of course as Philip says you need to specify a keyserver in the
same file. Mine reads:
Beware though, I now have 1300 keys and counting.
