I am not building contrib, because contrib does not need to build within 

I usually find X to be the most disk-consuming, and when I restricted pbuilder to use only 
2GB of disk, X build sometimes died due to out-of-diskspace errors.

Most packages build quite fine if you have 2GB.

There are some problem childs which take rather long to compile, like 
that dylan compiler, or gcc/glibc.
