You can sign it when dpkg-buildpackage asks you. Since you will have to be
actually there to do that you can then run lintian to check the package as well.

You can do this as an alternative. Also note that unless you are building
the package on a Debian box running sid/unstable then you *must also* build
it again in a sid chroot using something like pbuilder. You can then use
deb-sign to sign the package before you upload it.
