This an update of gnupg 1.0.7, it changes/fixes the following points:

* Fixed textmount usage:
   - gpg now handles configuration/key/trustdb files on textmounts correctly.
   - All files to be de-/encrypted are now opened in binary mode. Consider the
     use of dos2unix or unix2dos if you have problems with this.

* Disabled the "Please note that you don't have secure memory on this system"
   warning. PLEASE NOTE you really don't have secure memory on your windows

* Fixed the use of loadable modules. Now all modules can be loaded with the
   --load-extension=<modulename> command. The standard build will link
   rndlinux statically, but if you run
   $ ./configure --enable-static-rnd=none
   then also the rndegd random generator modules will be build as a loadable
   module. Attention! Now you have to call gpg with --load-extension=rnd???
   to make it work properly.

* Added a build script with instructions for a native w32 executable. Read
   /usr/src/gnupg-1.0.7-1/CYGWIN-PATCHES/gnupg.MinGW.README after typing:
   $ cd /usr/src ; ./ prep
   In that directory you will also find informations concerning the idea module.

P.S.: I droped the test: 1.1.90-1 line because that package needs other
       libraries. What is the prefered way when the test package has other
