Agreed that documentation should point to the mozilla-rootcerts-openssl
package.  That's what it is for.

However, I don't think MESSAGE is appropriate; this is just regular
read-the-docs post-install config.  So I removed MESSAGE content that
was redundant with the hint in DESCR that one might want
mozilla-rootcerts-openssl, and I put the gnupg2 content into a
newly-installed documentation file.

Probably someone should create a mozilla-rootcerts-gnupg2 package that
automates the gnup2 config.
