Eep, please don't tell people to give themselves full privileges with sudo
unless they know what they're doing.  The sudo configuration here is just
to run pbuilder, right?  If so, just recommend something like:

    bob ALL = NOPASSWD: /usr/sbin/pbuilder
    bob ALL = NOPASSWD: /usr/lib/pbuilder/pbuilder-satisfydepends

This is sufficient in my experience.

Also, note that your sample pbuilder script looks like it was miswrapped;
the script is showing up on the same line as the #!/bin/sh line.
