I think --list-trust-path does something to that effect, though I don´t know if you can use it for two arbitrary keys. Also, I think you´ll need all keys in the path already on your key-ring. I wrote a perl program to backtrace the signators of a given key, list them by number of hops, and retrieve missing keys, if necessary. It can also produce data for graph visualization. It´s at . That script is slightly buggy (as I noticed soon after I announced it here :-(, but I´ll mail you a corrected version, if you´re interested. I´ll have the correction up on the web site in a few days.
