I agree with Doug. Moving gnupg to gnupg1 implies to me that gnupg 2.x
is a drop-in upgrade for gnupg 1.x, but this certainly doesn't seem to
be the case. It's also rather strange to upgrade the "main" port
(implying that 2.x is the recommended and default version), and then
point all dependant ports at the *old* version.

In addition: I would guess that mail/imp, and maybe others, expect
bin/gpg to be present. If this is indeed the case, it would need
additional patching.
