Funny. I was under the impression that the buildds _did_ leave these
packages installed, and that was one of the things that pbuilder could
test that the buildds don't, that build-depends are complete and
sufficient.

I'm sure it's been suggested that the buildds remove the extra packages
after each run, but that is considered too inefficient, and the buildds
are not _expected_ to pick up all build-depends bugs.
