dblatex is needed for generating the documentation.

pbuilder-ubuntu can be built without it because it simply takes the Ubuntu package (i.e. *.deb) and repackages it for Arch Linux, whereas this package omits the “middleman” and is built directly from the upstream source releases. Basically like this:

  • pbuilder-ubuntu AUR package (has no buildtime dependency on dblatex) ← pbuilder Ubuntu package (*.deb; has a buildtime dependency on dblatex) ← Upstream pbuilder sources
  • pbuilder AUR package (this one; has a buildtime dependency on dblatex) ← Upstream pbuilder sources

The main difference between this package and pbuilder-ubuntu is some Ubuntu-specific (default) configuration IIRC. The pbuilder-ubuntu maintainer might know more about it.

Is there a reason to need dblatex to build?

pbuilder-ubuntu can be built without it.

Atleast in basic usage (make base image for a container) I didn't see any difference between the two package. pbuilder-ubuntu and pbuilder.
