Weird. Is $HOME correct for you? Here is the relevant code snippet from

if [ -e $HOME/.gnupg/secring.gpg -a ! -e $HOME/.pgp/secring.pgp ] ; then
if [ -e $HOME/.pgp/secring.pgp -a ! -e $HOME/.gnupg/secring.gpg ] ; then

Perhaps we should change that so gpg will be used by default if
$HOME/.gnupg/secring.gpg exists?

I also noticed that the gpg-support is in dpkg-buildpackage is currently
broken. I hope to fix that later this week.
