Re: Making pbuilder just that little bit faster

Absolutely, but there are at least two workarounds:

  1. Adding
    BINDMOUNTS="/var/cache/apt/archives"
    APTCACHE=""

    to your .pbuilderrc, in case you don’t need any special separation of local and pbuilder caches (that’s my case).

  2. Using apt-proxy or the like, which has its overhead, but also its other advantages.

None of them seem all that bad to me, considering the sensible speed improvements to pbuilder, but the ultimate decision probably depends on the amount of disk-access the packages in question need.
