I indeed didn't notice that because I did not install emdebian-tools
(I installed only some cross compilers). Obviously I did not notice
(or expect) the hint for emdebian-tools on the web page.

Maybe splitting emdebian-tools in 2 packages would help.
So there would be a "standard" keyring package (useful for
everyone who uses emdebian) and a emdebian-tools package
which depends on the keyring package (and is not needed
for many users).
