This worked but raises more questions.

I verified that I could find gpg from the shell. In other words, it
was in my $PATH. I then fired up MailMate from an iTerm2 window—
and it still couldn't find gpg. However, the symlink in /usr/local/bin
did work. This suggests that either MailMate or something about
the application launch framework (I did 'open 
is resetting the path. If the latter, perhaps there needs to be a hidden
preference for $PATH?
