Here is what I do on my home heater (very handy now during winter
times): http://labs.seravo.fi/~otto/mariadb-repo/build.sh

On your clean VM maybe this should be enough:

gbp-clone --pristine-tar git://github.com/ottok/mariadb-5.5.git

OR if you don't want to re-download all the time, then just doing a
fetch and trigger a build if there are new commits with:

git fetch origin
  if [ -n "$(git log HEAD..origin/master --oneline)" ]; then

  -> build

The actual build part can be:

gbp-pull --pristine-tar --force # takes in also the pristine-tar
branch latest updates, force takes care of my potential git rebase
action resolving

git-buildpackage  --git-pristine-tar # will eventually run
dpkg-buildbackage just like debina/autobake.sh now does, no pbuilder
is used with this plain command

With pbuilder the commands are same as above expect for:

git-buildpackage  --git-pristine-tar --git-notify=false --git-pbuilder
--git-dist=sid --git-arch=amd64

Note that pbuilder will create a chroot, so it does not really need to
be run inside a clean VM, it will semi-create one itself (but it does
not hurt running it within a Debian unstable VM).
In the VM that runs plain git-buildpackage the build depends need to
be installed before, like you do with the other VMs now too.
