Nitpicking: this is rather a factory than a builder. The difference 
between the patterns is that you create a new builder object for every dict:

     builder = DictBuilder()
     builder['a'] = 0
     builder['b'] = 1
     builder['c'] = 2
     result = builder.build()

and create a fabric only for the whole class of dicts:

     factory = DictFactory(tuple("abc"))  # only once
     ...
     result = factory(range(3))

I like the idea of a factory object more than the idea of the dict method.
