If you have only one key with your email address that you use on the
changelog (ie, you have no RSA key with the same address), all you need to
do is make sure that the key is on the Debian gpg keyring and tell
dpkg-buildpackage to use gpg with "-pgpg -sgpg"

If you have an RSA key or more than one key with the same email address,
you should tell gpg which one to use with -k (requires dpkg-dev

So in my case to use my RSA key I use:

  dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -pgpg -sgpg -k0x50BDA0ED
