So the config override seems to caused some sort of bug in gbp buildpackage 
(or lower?).  Builds now no longer include the source orig.tar.gz file.  I 
workaround this by passing the "-sa" argument to gbp buildpackage and can 
work around it by adding DEBBUILDOPTS=-sa to the profile.  However, the man 
page says nothing about the deb build opts being reset by pointing at a 
different profile.

>From the man page:

              Specify to use different apt set up inside the chroot than it 
was used for creating the base.tgz.  Specify this when you want to do 
pbuilder update with a
              different distribution target set up.

              --distribution , --components , --mirror , --othermirror 
options are only valid when --override-config option is  specified  in 
update  target,  or  when
              pbuilder create is being called.
