Any plain text file in .pgpkey should be displayed be cfingerd when a
remote finger is done. You should extract your public pgp key with
ASCII armour and put it in that file:
pgp -kxa [your_name] temp
This creates two files `temp', with the binary key, `temp.asc' with
the ASCII key. Move `temp.asc' to `.pgpkey'.
IMPORTANT: pgp generates files unreadable by the world (mode 600),
make sure `.pgpkey' has mode 644 so that it can be accessed by the
daemon. Otherwise finger says you have no pgp key! (Tripped me up for
