An example would be the recipe for "multiple pbuilders" at

I'm used to calling "DIST=feisty pdebuild" to create a package in a feisty 

The problem with PBUILDERROOTCMD="sudo" is, that $DIST makes it not into 
the "sudo" session anymore, when "sudo -E pbuilder --build" is called: 
therefore .pbuilderrc cannot dynamically change the settings based on $DIST 
and the default settings get used.

I'm unsure, if "sudo -E" will work for all users by default in Debian, based 
on the changelog entry for sudo 1.6.9p6-1ubuntu1, which says:
  * sudo.c, parse.c: Apply a change that was missing from the older upstream
    tarball that fixes the upstream solution of "SETENV is implicit for ALL".
    We do not want to deviate our orig.tar.gz from Debian's, though.
