This is a matter of setting things up the way dpkg needs it. debmake is just
a kind of front end to dpkg-buildpackage.

The changes file is a mandatory file for uploads and will be automatically generated
by the "build" command which invokes dpkg-buildpackage. If the PGP stuff fails then the
dpkg-buildpackages generation of the .changes file might fail.
