yes if you have the key on another server such as a production box.

gpg --export-secret-key -a > a-filename-here

copy it to the dev box with something like scp

then on the dev box

gpg --import a-filename-here

make sure to remove the file you generated exporting the key. You 
don't want someone to see copy it ;)

shred -f -n 1000 -z -v -u a-filename-here
