buildd realy should have the option to delete the chroot and rebuild
(or untar) a new one. For big builds its probably even faster to wipe
and untar a fresh chroot than to uninstall all the packages.
PS: On i386 I use an lvm snapshot that gets created for every package
build. No time wasted on rebuilding the chroot but always a fresh
one. Might be an option for the amiga buildds running 2.4.x.
