When using the rpmbuild --sign command for building and signing RPM, rpmbuild give no error if rpm-sign is not available. It build the SRPM as expected but do not sign it. Installing rpm-sign fix the problem.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Make sure rpm-sign is not installed.
2.Run a build (ex: rpmbuid -ba --sign your_package.srpm.
Actual Results:  
See that rpmbuild finish the build but did not ask for passphrase or complain that rpm-sign is not present.

Expected Results:  
rpmbuild should notice the user that it cannot sign the package due to missing rpm-sign.
