Hmmm. Another option is that it's due to a libc version skew.
During a build libc6 is copied from the host system (because we need the
corresponding -pic), while libnss-* is unpacked from udebs.
So it could be that the buildds have a version of libc which really doesn't
provide the symbol.
/me tests this theory by firing up his armel box, which promptly reproduces
After updating the system the problem disappears. So, that confirms the
reason is outdated buildd environments after an API change in libc (2.9 ->
2.10). The first 2.10 upload was 18 Okt, so the problem should be only
about a week old.
