Do you want to put a subkey under a different primary key?  There are no
command line options for that.  Recall that a subkey is bound by a key
signature to the primary key.

With the development version (2.1) it is possible to add a subkey using
any existing key: Use "gpg2 --edit-key", "addkey", select "(13) Existing
key", and enter the keygrip.  To view all keygrip run
"gpg2 --with-keygrip -K".



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
