No -- but they do produce a freeware version you can compile from
source on most Unixoid systems.

Most people around here seem to be using gpg(1) -- that's from the
security/gnupg port.  It's a reimplementation of the PGP software
under the terms of the GPL, since NAI and now PGP Corporation seemed
to be heading towards a more restrictive licensing scheme on newer

As the file formats etc. for PGP are an open standard, you should be
able to use any of the popular Unix implementations more or less
