I'm pretty sure the format isn't compatible.
The configuration right now I believe does the following:
PGP key rings go into <newsetc>/pgp/pubring.pgp if <newsetc>/pgp exists,
otherwise into ~news/.pgp/pubring.pgp.
GnuPG key rings go into <newsetc>/pgp/pubring.gpg if <newsetc>/pgp
exists, otherwise into ~news/.gnupg/pubring.gpg.
The only weird thing about the current configuration is that I believe PGP
2.6.2 will be wanting to write a randseed.bin file into <newsetc>/pgp.
I'm not sure how to get around that and still have it use a key ring in
