It isn't possible. The gpg-rsaref does not have key generation code
included. Also, AFAIK gpg does not have an option to generate a PGP 2.x
key - it only creates OpenPGP keys.

Please don't create -new- PGP 2.x RSA keys, use DSA in an OpenPGP form for
all new keys.

You only need the idea package to process or create PGP 2.x compatible
encrypted messages.
