Were you using a different su before ?
sudo (and a program called su2, and possibly others) preserve your HOME envariable, so when pgp looks in $HOME/.pgp it finds the original user's pgp info. This then works:
$ sudo -s
and you should be prompted for your own pgp key.
IMHO "dpkg-buildpackage -rsudo" is a better way to go though.
