No. It needs DESTDIR, wherever you point that too (Look in the script).
And then you invoke it with keycheck.sh KEYID and wait for the output.
rsync and gnupg should be installed on your machine of course :)

The script will then rsync the Debian Keyrings, fetch the NMs key from a
keyserver and list all sigs that are from people which have a key in the
Debian Keyring.
If you keep DELETE=no in the script it also compares with previous NMs
keys.
Gnupg also outputs "XXX Signatures not checked due to missing keys" if
there are signatures from other keys.
After that you get a "Key is ok" if its > Version 4 or a long warning if
its not.

BTW: Read the header of the script, its all there. :)
