debootstrap-farm is included in unofficial buildd-farm package, on

This command is the wrapper of debootstrap, just does:
#! /bin/bash +e

debootstrap $*

if [ "$1" == "--variant=buildd" ]; then
  echo "adding extra directories"
  install -d $3/var/debbuild/srcdep-lock -o buildd
  install -d $3/build/buildd -m 777
  cp /etc/passwd $3/etc/

I wrote a note on http://kmuto.jp/open.cgi?buildd
This note is not perfect and has funny English :-), but will help you.

(BTW I tried to queue tetex-bin with manual installed tetex-base yesterday, but
it goes strange infinite loop. I'll send a report to BTS later.)
