 Ah!  That's the trick!  For a long while, I was using
 PBUILDER_CONFIG=/home/lool/.pbuilder to pass around the root of my
 config hierarchy to my misc pbuilder scripts, but I had to hardcode it
 in all my pbuilderrc files because *something* was dropping it from the
 env.  At some point it was cowdancer I think, but this was fixed long
 ago, and since some weeks, I didn't know what caused it again.  I set
 PBUILDERROOTCMD to sudo -E, and now everything is fine again!
