The easiest way is to just tell gpg to use pgp's keyrings in addition to
its own. Add these lines to the ~/.gnupg/options file:
  # your old pgp keyrings
  keyring ~/.pgp/pubring.pgp
  secret-keyring ~/.pgp/secring.pgp

It's recommended to create new GPG keys, though, instead of using your
old pgp keys. You may need one of the nonfree gpg-idea or gpg-rsa
packages to be able to read those keyrings, i don't recall...

  finger for GPG public key.
