I just reproduced the hang on a standard pbuilder setup: after
installing pbuilder and editing MIRRORSITE in /etc/pbuilderrc to your
liking and setting DISTRIBUTION to sid, you should just be able to run
pbuilder create, then "pbuilder build r-base_*.dsc 2>&1|tee
build-log".  This reproduced the bug for me.  (I'm not sure whether
pbuilder is actually required, but I didn't feel like installing the
Build-Depends for r-base in the root filesystem.)

No, i386.
