Problems with apt-build and packages authentication

I have this problem with apt-build:
building sources works for almost all packages, but when going to
install them it fails with this error:

Building dependency tree... Done
The following NEW packages will be installed:
0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 4 not upgraded.
Need to get 0B/34.5kB of archives.
After unpacking 106kB of additional disk space will be used.
WARNING: The following packages cannot be authenticated!
E: There are problems and -y was used without --force-yes
Segmentation fault

I can still then install the package by hand with dpkg -i but I would
like to have apt-build to do all the job. So I investigated a little
in man pages of apt-key and apt-secure, but I couldn't find a working
Any help will be appreciated.


* In fact I tried the following:

1) I created a gpg key for root:
# gpg --gen-key

2) I signed with it the release file in local repository of apt-build:
# cd /var/cache/apt-build/repository
# gpg -abs -o Release.gpg Release

3) I have add teh key to the accepted ones:
# gpg --armor --export rootkeyid | apt-key add -

but this seems not to work since, according to what written in
apt-secure man page, you need to update the signature every time a new
package is uploaded to the repository, and this cannot be done
automatically by apt-build after the compilation and before installing
the package.
