Ok, I see the option get passed in:

I: forking: pbuilder build --debbuildopts  --debbuildopts  --configfile 
/home/build/.pbuilderrc.ol25 --buildplace 
/var/cache/pbuilder/build/cow.72185 --buildresult /home/bui
ld/git/soldap/25/d10 --mirror http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu 
--architecture amd64 --distribution devel --extrapackages ccache --no-targz 
--internal-chrootexec 'chroot /
var/cache/pbuilder/build/cow.72185 cow-shell' 

But it doesn't appear to actually honor the OTHERMIRROR setting:

cat ~/.pbuilderrc.ol25
OTHERMIRROR="deb [trusted=yes] 
http://apito1.rb.symas.net/repo/deb/main/ol25 buster main"

because it's unable to find the package:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 pbuilder-satisfydepends-dummy : Depends: symas-buildtools which is a 
virtual package and is not provided by any available package

If I log in directly:
DIST=buster ARCH=amd64 git-pbuilder login

add it to the sources list:

root at ub20build:/# echo "deb [trusted=yes] 
http://apito1.rb.symas.net/repo/deb/main/ol25 buster main" >> 
root at ub20build:/# apt update
Get:1 http://apito1.rb.symas.net/repo/deb/main/ol25 buster InRelease [5717 
Hit:2 http://http.us.debian.org/debian buster InRelease
Get:3 http://apito1.rb.symas.net/repo/deb/main/ol25 buster/main amd64 
Packages [484 B]
root at ub20build:/# apt install symas-buildtools

The following NEW packages will be installed:
0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

So it appears that while the option is passed in, it doesn't actually do 
anything in regards to it. :/
