In the db.debian.org packages file, not the sid one.

wget http://db.debian.org/debian-admin/Packages

look for 'buildd' in Packages, and see what the version number is.
construct a file name 'wanna-build_' plus the version number of buildd
as found in Packages.

wget http://db.debian.org/debian-admin/wanna-build_$version.tgz
