Yes; this is what the developer's reference says also.  Someone
mindful of French law oughta correct me if that is incorrect.  The
developers-reference (which will have to be updated again when gpg
becomes more mainstream and pgp is officially deprecated) says:

     If you live in a country where use of cryptography even for
     authentication is forbidden then please contact us so we can make
     special arrangements. This does not apply in France, where I believe
     only encryption and not authentication is forbidden.
