Debian uses PGP 2.6.3.

I personally use GPG with the RSAREF module.  Using GPG with RSA keys is a
little more complex for the moment because the current version of dpkg-dev
is going to use the first key that matches your email address--­that'd be
your DSA key which dinstall can't understand yet.  Espy has a version of
dpkg with my patch to let you specify a keyid to use.
