pgp on the alpha broken?

Am I the only person here who has problems running pgp?

Mind you, I'm running a home-compiled one, but whenever I invoke pgp,
I get:

$ pgp -ast libtermreadkey-perl_2.09-1_i386.changes
Pretty Good Privacy(tm) 2.6.3a - Public-key encryption for the masses.

A secret key is required to make a signature.
You specified no user ID to select your secret key,
so the default user ID and key will be the most recently
added key on your secret keyring.

You need a pass phrase to unlock your RSA secret key.
Key for user ID: Michael Alan Dorman <mdorman@debian.org>
2047-bit key, key ID E79985E5, created 1996/09/09

Enter pass phrase: cannot open tty, using stdin

Also, if you notice I'm doing this by hand, it's because pgp fails
completely under dpkg-buildpackage, as -fast seems to fail because of
the "cannot open tty, using stdin" message.

Does anyone have any suggestions about this?  It's a really pain in
the rear.
