I had a nice laugh at this one. Looks like you have gnu ingrained in
you :)

The reason for the rejection of the manpage is obvious when you look
at the existing diff.gz file for gnupg_1.0.1-2 on frozen:


Looks like the maintainer of gnupg, James Troup, decided to
hand-install a man-page. Look at the diff file above. It should be
obvious as to the changes he made (also look at his changelog
entries), and why you had a reject on the diff for the manpage.
