What's wrong with this equivs control file?

I've compiled gnupg from source and am trying unsuccessfully to use
equivs to remove the standard package from my system but keep
satisfying the dependencies. I have the following gnupg-equiv.ctl
Provides: gnupg (= 1.9.0)
Description: gnupg with IDEA
GPG compiled from source with IDEA.
(I've tried this with and without the "Conflicts" line included.)
Then I use equivs-build and dpkg -i to try to install it, but I keep
getting errors that dpkg cannot remove the existing gnupg package
because of dependencies. What am I missing?
