Okay, now I have something to start at. I'll try to change the build
process on the current machine as close to the one on the old one. This
should be done within the next few days.

You're already using the new mirror, aren't you? In that case, you need
to install archlinux32-keyring first on the installation medium (!).

The problem was, that I had to include archlinux32-keyring as a pacman
dependency, so it would get installed next to archlinux-keyring. But for
this, I have to recompile pacman and sign it with my build key. On the
other hand, the iso still uses the official packages - and especially
the official pacman package without archlinux32-keyring.
