verifying the integrity of the source

How can I check the integrity of the OpneSSL package?  I have downloaded 
the archive and the MD5 sum and signature files.  If I try to use gpg 
--keyserver <keyserver> --verify openssl-0.9.6g.tar.gz.asc, I get some 
message about an unsupported public key algorithm, and the verification 
can't be done.

Could it be the version of gpg I'm using?  I have gpg 1.0.0, and the 
signature file indicates Version: 2.6.3ia (I know that's not the version of 
gpg I need).
