I hit this yesterday when I was trying to build the nVidia drivers.  I found
that by adding a '-pgpg', it shut up and did its work correctly.

-p specifies a program to use for signing.  In this case, I specified 'gpg'
(GNU Privacy Guard), because I already had it installed.  PGP would work
just as well, I imagine.
