Well, this build takes a long time (at least 45 minutes from start to
failure). I'm getting tired of trying over and over again; it took me
about four hours of compiling to prove certainly that Blars suggestion
Can you give me a hook script that will give an interactive shell? I
tried the obvious:
which did not succeed; it ran the script, but apparently pbuilder
doesn't pass stdin/stdout down to the scripts.
Surely it's not too hard to have a "don't clean" option; after all, it
exists for the login and exec modes. Regardless, I'm back to "there
is no way to debug this problem".
