Build times for kdebase_4:3.3.2-1sarge3:

amd64    00:33:42
s390     00:52:54
alpha    01:00:05
ia64     01:02:28
powerpc  01:38:57
mipsel   02:04:20
mips     02:06:55
hppa     02:07:51
sparc    02:47:48
arm      11:44:41
m68k     26:39:13

m68k is an order of a magnitude slower and that's not acceptable.
(While arm clearly sucks as well, Steve said that a new, faster arm
buildd is in the works.)

I just signed it. procmail didn't filter it correctly, as the To: was
different for your manual build.

Another buildd for stable-security seems a good idea, but the problem of
peak times remains.
