I was under the impression that you were meant to build sparc packages
under the sparc32 program.

You might also want to look at pentium-builder, despite its name.

I'm amazed that it ever works. pbuilder just tacks DEBBUILDOPTS onto the
end of the dpkg-buildpackage command line, and -m to dpkg-buildpackage
means "set the maintainer address to this". It's not a place where you
can put compiler options.
