I have tried with my mail address as well as the shorthash, both do not
work. No problem with pacman 4.0.3.

Just took a look at the source code... create_signature() at line 1806 returns
without any action if SIGNPKG does not equal to "y". But SIGNPKG is only set
to "y" with --sign, no matter what check_buildenv returns.

The attached patch fixes this for me.
main(a){char*c=/*    Schoene Gruesse                         */"B?IJj;MEH"
"CX:;",b;for(a/*    Chris           get my mail address:    */=0;b=c[a++];)
putchar(b-1/(/*               gcc -o sig sig.c && ./sig    */b/42*2-3)*42);}
