I *think* adding (an undocumented option, used for pbuilder-uml)
"--internal-build-uml" option to pbuilder whenever you invoke it will skip the tarring up part.
For example, if you have a chroot image at /tmp/sid, specifying:
pbuilder build --buildplace /tmp/sid --internal-build-uml /home/dancer/pbuilder_0.52.dsc
will do what you probably want to do.
(it's not as brushed up as I want it to be, but it seems to work.)
