apt-get build-dep burg-pc burg-emu

Reading package lists... Done

Debian Sid is the unstable version so you wouldn't want that http: in your sources list. At least I wouldn't-

Is it working now?

Are you using the terminal to edit your sources list?

I use Nano and when I do I open the terminal and run this to bring up my list and edit it-
Code:
nano /etc/apt/sources.list
Than add all of the http: <address, etc...>
During the process of editing your list in the terminal you should see the word Modify.
Make sure you save the chances before you close your terminal.

Or are you editing your sources list through Synaptic?

Yes,
as long as your running Debian Squeeze. Take your time don't rush through your sources list one mistake can make communication with the Debian website and backports null and void even if your off by one letter.
