Maybe my debootstrap is simply too old. I'll compare versions.

Hehe, you guys know far more than they do. They told me it wasn't
possible to simply replace my k7 kernel with an amd64-k8 kernel untill I
said "But I am running it right now and it works!". Let alone that they
knew anything about amd64 pbuilder on a 32-bit system.
Last question: How do the debian build servers do it? Do they have a
build server for every architecture or is everything cross-compiled with
architecture specific toolchains?
Thanks for all the help so far!
