Are you sure ?

   File `log' in pari_2.1.4-2_m68k (Nov 7      pari >> 2.1.4-2 >> Nov 7 14:07 
   14:07)                                                              >> log 

 Automatic build of pari_2.1.4-2 on arrakis by sbuild/m68k 1.168
 Build started at 20021107-1543
 dpkg-source: extracting pari in pari-2.1.4
  /usr/bin/sudo debian/rules clean
  debian/rules build
  /usr/bin/sudo debian/rules binary-arch

Oh yes you are correct.

The problem is that doing 'debian/rules build' will try build the
documentation and fail. Of course, we can build the documentation in the
binary-indep target instead, but it is not good since it can be run as
root, and I would really consider it a kludge.  

I understand that build-indep and build-arch have been added to policy
for that purpose but that sbuild do not know about them. Is there plan
to fix that, at least for the sake of m68k ?
