dpkg-buildpackage -B -m"John Goerzen <firstname.lastname@example.org>"
That should generate one or more .deb and one .changes file,
ready to be uploaded to master.
However: I don't know if "pgp" works well on Sparc; maybe you
have to use flags "-uc -us" in dpkg-buildpackage and sign the .changes
manually from an i386 box using:
pgp -ast file_sparc.changes ; mv file_sparc.changes.dsc file_sparc.changes
