Not 'that' difficult :) I've just uploaded new mplayer release to extras from my old RedHat clone without any problem.
Here is the log. I hope it helps:
$ cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Linux release 9 (Shrike)
$ ls
mplayer_1.0pre8-maemo.7_armel.changes  mplayer_1.0pre8-maemo.7.diff.gz
mplayer_1.0pre8-maemo.7_armel.deb      mplayer_1.0pre8-maemo.7.dsc
$/scratchbox/devkits/debian/bin/debsign -e"eduard.bartosh at nokia.com" mplayer_1.0pre8-maemo.7_armel.changes
 signfile mplayer_1.0pre8-maemo.7.dsc eduard.bartosh at nokia.com

<skipped pathphrase's requests> 
Successfully signed dsc and changes files
$ scp * ed_ at garage.maemo.org:/var/www/extras/incoming/

That's it. After 2 minutes all mplayer files were accessible by apt from extras repo.

BTW, I didn't manage to sign packages in scratchbox  because of gnupg problem:
 signfile mplayer_1.0pre8-maemo.7.dsc Ed Bartosh <eduard.bartosh at nokia.com>
gpg: WARNING: "--no-show-policy-url" is a deprecated option
gpg: please use "--list-options no-show-policy-urls" instead
gpg: WARNING: "--no-show-policy-url" is a deprecated option
