When signing is enabled, the first package built must be signed already.
If gnupg (or any other implementation) is not readily available on the
system, building and installing packages will therefore fail - blocking
the whole process.

Note that I am not familiar with the way bulk builds are implemented in
particular, so maybe this isn't a problem.

For my tests and in the case of EdgeBSD, I am bootstrapping an
unprivileged environment before triggering the actual build, just like
this script does:;a=blob;f=pkgsrc/;hb=HEAD
