3 More details on setting GPGKEY

The instructions currently say: "To do package signing, you will need to set the GPGKEY variable. You either set it as an environmental variable, or in /etc/makepkg.conf, or in ~/.makepkg.conf." However, it is unclear to me, that how GPGKEY is set: 1) What is the syntax (in ~/.makepkg.conf, at least). 2) What is the value for GPGKEY? Is it the public or private key ID? How do I find out the value?
