It doesn't, however it can be done with gpg and your existing pgp 5
keyring (or you can just import the key, but then you have to muck with
trust's a bit to get it to trust level 6)

The way to do it with gpg is add -sgpg -ppgp -k<numeric keyid> to the
dpkg-buildpackage (or debuild) cmdline.  If you have only one key with the
email address you use in the changelog, you don't need -k but I personally
think it's a good idea to have anyway.

If you need any help with setting up gpg I'd be happy to help..  I've got
it set up to very completely emulate pgp 2.x and pgp 5.x already..
