"use the ports". e-mail the maintainer and ask if he plans on updating
it anytime soon.

don't believe everything you read. bsd make works fine with gpg.

okay. let's do this logically.
there's a problem with asm.
so let's check the configure script:
07:20pm[jolan@jolan]~/gnupg-1.0.7$ ./configure --help |grep asm
--disable-asm do not use assembler modules
oh. we can disable the use of assembly. let's try that:
./configure --disable-asm && make
oh. it compiles just dandy now.
if compiling software is beyond your grasp, then you really should be
using the ports & packages. and if you're going to complain about
software not compiling successfully, you should do so on the software's
mailing list, not the openbsd mailing list.
