If you invoke "pbuilder --binary-arch" then it in turn invokes
"debian/rules binary-arch". So it looks as if your binary-arch target
is running the complete "build" target.

In the case of the "tex4ht" package I have chosen to create two
targets "build-arch" and "build-indep" which are invoked by the
appropriate "binary-*" targets. You can browse the SVN repo of the
debian directory of the tex4ht package on svn.debian.org
to see this.
