Quite well..  Here's my ~/.gnupg/options file:

# Options for GnuPG
# Unless you you specify which option file to use (with the
# commandline option "--options filename"), GnuPG uses the
# file ~/.gnupg/options by default.
# An option file can contain all long options which are
# available in GnuPG. If the first non white space character of
# a line is a '#', this line is ignored.  Empty lines are also
# ignored.
# See the man page for a list of options.

# default-key 0x3F9C2A43
default-key 0x50BDA0ED

## This stuff is all here for pgp compatibility
digest-algo md5
#load-extension rsa
load-extension rsaref

To use that with dpkg-buildpackage:

dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -pgpg -sgpg -k0x50BDA0ED   <-- my RSA key
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -pgpg -sgpg -k0xDCF9DAB3   <-- my DSA key
