pbuilder - build a debian package in a chroot (chroot => will build
for the arch of the box pbuilder runs on)
qemubuilder - feels like pbuilder, but does not chroot into an image,
but uses a qemu image (you can build for other arches
with this, but it's slow of course)
cowbuilder - I never used this one, but afaik it's used for building
for multiple targets by running pbuilder multiple times
with different setups.
so why building in a chroot? First you make sure the list of packages
in Build-Depends is complete (because if not build will fail) and
second you may run Debian stable but want to build for unstable.
So actually none of these crosscompiles ;) dpkg-cross is used for
this, but don't ask me how to do it - I never tried.
If you work on e17 Debian packages you should get in contact with
Albin Tonnerre <lutin at debian.org> - The current maintainer of e17.
