Backsigs are part of a signing subkey. You don't generally need to
issue them, since they are generated automatically when you make a
signing subkey. If you have an older key with one or more signing
subkeys and want to add backsigs to it, do 'gpg --edit-key (thekey)'
and use the 'backsign' command.

Moving subkeys around is not supported in GnuPG. You can follow the
steps in http://atom.smasher.org/gpg/gpg-migrate.txt if you want to do
There are generally few reasons to move subkeys from one key to
another. Usually a better answer is to just make another one -
subkeys are cheap.
