Importing existing key as subkey

I'm trying to consolidate my various master keys into a single master
with subkeys. On my 'old' computer with gpg2.0 (openSUSE 42.3) I was
able to export the secret key and split it up with `gpgsplit`. On my
new machine (openSUSE Tumbleweed), the `gpgsplit` command is
unavailable, and I'm curious if that functionality has been removed or
named to something else between the two versions.
I have an existing key generated using gpg2.0 that I would like to
import as a subkey to my main master key, which is on a computer with
gpg2.2. For the most part I'm following this SO answer:
I've been able to split up the 'old' key (step 1) into its constituent
packets using `gpg --export-secret-keys XXXXXXX | gpgsplit -vp XXXXXXX_`
and transport them to my main computer. From there I created some dummy
slots in my master. I'm stuck at step four where I need to split up my
master key into its packets because gpgsplit is missing, and apparently
not to be found in a gpg-related tool in the main repositories.
I realize this answer might be out-of-date (2014), but I haven't found
anything thus far as thorough about consolidating. If someone can point
me to another resource on this topic, I would certainly appreciate it.
