Looking at the pbuilder(8) man page, it seems that pbuilder always take
a .dsc file for building a package.  Therefore whatever program that
calls pbuilder needs to get the .orig.tar.gz and .diff.gz files ready.
I think that's the reason clean target in debian/rules are called.

Many times I've downloaded a source package and build it in pbuilder
without installing any build dependency.  So pbuilder is probably not
the one to blame here.
