It's quite right but PGP is not a tool for signing but also a tool for
encrypting. So PGP is probably forbidden. But don't stress there are
quite a lot of people who use PGP in France and there has never been
any problem AFAIK.
For more information about the laws, you could have a look (it's in
French) at http://www.aui.fr/Projets/Crypto/crypto-faq.html

Wrong. Look at the build manpage :
If you find that dpkg-buildpackage is still prompting you
for a pgp password then set the environent variable PGP
PASS to the password you use and it will work completely
without asking any questions. Note that doing this on a
multiuser system is a potential problem since other users
might find ways to have a look at your environment set
tings in .profile, through the /proc interface, with ps or
with some other means. See the pgp documentation for more
details on the issue.
