Yes, Abou, cowbuilder is pretty neat !  Worked first time for me just 
now. And guarantees a clean env, excellent.

gbp does not suit my situation unfortunately. My git repo has everything 
needed to build binary debs, rpms, Windows, Mac, PPA, packman as well as 
debian source packages, I make some serious changes at build time so I 
have my own script, "prepare" that must achieve pretty much the same 
result as gbp, then I run debuild.

Not sure I want to compromise the relatively easy build I can do for all 
the others just to make the Debian Source package easier.

Worth noting the cowbuilder cuts in *after* the problem I was having by 
the way, its the debuild step (from raw source code to Debian Source 
Package) and, frankly, that does surprise me still. But using a Testing 
vm instead of a backported Bullseye does, reliably, solve my problem.
