It is available, just only in book form. This is a "cover your ass" move by
PGP as cryptographic code can be legally exported from the US if it is not
The source at <http://www.pgpi.com/> is almost exactly the same as the
source used to build the "US version" at the MIT site, the only difference
is that the "US version" uses RSAREF, to avoid the patent issues.
I have seen versions of PGP 2.6.3i that were legal in the US, because they
were compiled with RSAREF instead of MPILIB.
It must be possible to do this with the PGP 5 code base as well.
