Note that the "minimal" build-dep set isn't the same as the full
build-dep set; if one build-dep directly or indirectly depends on
another direct build-dep, you could drop that direct build-dep, and
pbuilder would still compile.  But the suggestion is to list the full
build-deps, not the minimal set.  To find the full build-deps (which
will be a superset of the "minimal" build-deps) the following tools from
devscripts are suggested:

  - dpkg-depcheck, dpkg-genbuilddeps: determine the packages used during
      the build of a Debian package; useful for determining the Build-Depends
      control field needed [build-essential, strace]
