I never needed pbuilder for this, I always used debootstrap.

But you might need to download the latest version for the distribution
you are building.

I thinkl I explained all of this in the multi-distribution wiki page -
and therer are helper scripts for this in the subversion tree
"fai-distributions" that should help you even run a debootstrap from
other versions without installing it (which might even run on
non-dpkg-distributions, by the way.
