Bug#41794: dpkg-buildpackage PGP key lookup

reopen 41794

Nobody bothered to send any information about why this bug was closed,
but by looking through the logs...

In the case of a key lookup in a ring, I can't see any reason why the
email address alone would not be enough to make it unique.  It's not
a security thing since the security comes from having access to and
the passphrase for the private key, so it's simply a matter of convienence.
It would be convienent if dpkg wasn't so picky on this matter.

                                  ( bcwhite@pobox.com )

         Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.
