No, that wasn't it.  See my reply to that message that probably
arrived by now.

Since my system is sarge and the base.tgz I want to create is also
sarge I am hoping that I can just do that with the pbuilder that comes
with sarge, which is 0.123...

Meanwhile I notice a bug report called "pbuilder: cannot build sarge
basetgz": http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=316135.
That's for version 0.127, but might help me too.  My /var partition is
mounted nodev.  I'll remount it dev and see if that helps.
