You should also export your public key; do this before you do the
above. So if you want to export the key 0x12345678 do this:
gpg --export -a 0x12345678 > pub+sec.asc
gpg --export-secret-keys -a 0x12345678 >> pub+sec.asc
Note: The forthcoming release of GnuPG does require that you use
the option --allow-secret-key-import to _import_ a secret key;
however it will tell you this if it sees a secret key.
