Hi gpg users,

We currently have three unmaintained ports for gnupg: gnupg (ver 1.4), gnupg12
(ver 1.2) and gnupg2 (ver 2.x).

In order to implement proper launchd integration in gpg-agent, I will likely
have to slightly patch gnupg as well.

If anyone here is (actively) using gpg 1.4 or 1.2, please reply. Why do you need
those ports? Is switching to gpg 2 an option for you?
If you only "use" gpg as a dependency of some other port, you don't have to do
anything. All ports currently depending on gnupg12 or gnupg seem to be
compatible with gnupg2 (at least after a version bump.)

I'd like to get rid of gnupg and gnupg12 after a grace period.
