You list the build-dependencies as best you know them, and then build
in pbuilder.  If it does not build, then you look at the last line,
and figure out what it needs that it didn't have, and add the
appropriate thing.  If it does build, then you remove the build-deps
one by one to make sure that each one is, in fact, necessary.

Rinse and repeat.
