If you use binary detached signatures (-sb) this is pretty easy.  You
can simply concatenate the signature files.  We do this for gnupg
releases.  gnupg/build-auc/ is a script which helps
with this workflow.

If the messages are armored you need to de-armor (gpg --dearmor) them
first, concatenate and en-armor them.  Finnally fix up the armor lines.
