[Rpm-maint] [rpm-software-management/rpm] rpmsign asks for key password twice per file (#150)

Because of `makeGPGSignature()` being called separately for header and contents ([sign/rpmgensig.c:403](https://github.com/rpm-software-management/rpm/blob/master/sign/rpmgensig.c#L403)), and that GPG asks for password itself — each time it is called — signing every single rpm requires typing the password twice.

This could be fixed in two ways:
 * by temporarily storing the password in memory and giving it to GPG when it needs to open the key
 * opening the secret key once, and then signing the packet with the key being already opened.
