I tried doing this, but I get an error:

$ debuild -uc -us -b --preserve-envvar=SHELL
debuild: unknown dpkg-buildpackage/debuild option: --preserve-envvar=SHELL
 dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -D -us -uc -b --preserve-envvar=SHELL
dpkg-buildpackage: unknown option or argument --preserve-envvar=SHELL

Use --help for program usage information.
debuild: fatal error at line 1376:
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -D -us -uc -b --preserve-envvar=SHELL failed

I wasn't able to track down the --preserve-envvar flag in the debuild
docs. Is that the correct place to pass it?
