I hit this yesterday when I was trying to build the nVidia drivers. I found
that by adding a '-pgpg', it shut up and did its work correctly.
-p specifies a program to use for signing. In this case, I specified 'gpg'
(GNU Privacy Guard), because I already had it installed. PGP would work
just as well, I imagine.
