It might actually be two issues here. Please note the "Invalid archive
signature" error before the gnupg issue.

To be honest it took me quite some time to come up with a workaround. This
doesn't solve the original issue but might help others. Here is what I did for
the time being:

I put the Debian package into config/chroot_local-includes/root/ and created a
hook in config/chroot_local-hooks/ which installs the package via `dpkg -i
/root/<package_file>`, adjusts the installation, and then removes

Things that also didn't work: (1) use wget in the hooks to get the package and
install it (DNS issues), (2) put the package into config/chroot_local-hooks/
together with the hook (then the package is treated like a separate hook).

I however don't understand why wget didn't work. I mean e.g.
in config/chroot_local-hooks/59-libdvd-pkg the package installation also
uses wget.

Well I found a workaround and I'm quite happy :)
