Sure, that's possible to do. "port notes gnupg1" even says it was planned to do that:

All binaries will be postfixed with "1" and dependents switched over to pull in modern GnuPG, eventually forcing an upgrade. After this date, this port will still be provided for users that need to work on old data, which is not supported by the modern version any longer, but not used within MacPorts.

Looks like we didn't get around to doing that yet though. I don't see a ticket for this task either. You could file one.
