              When dpkg-buildpackage needs to execute PGP to sign
              a source control (.dsc) file or a .changes file  it
              will  run pgp-command (searching the PATH if neces
              sary) instead of pgp.  pgp-command will get all the
              arguments  that  pgp  would have done.  pgp-command
              should  not  contain  spaces  or  any  other  shell

Maybe this is enough for now to be able to use gpg?
