True... and the incoming access problem didn't help either in bringing the
backlog down. 
Having a smarter buildd queue is a long term goal and something that I
wouldn't burden on the shoulders of the m68k porters. I already made some
proposals to enhance the build process long ago. For example to not remove
all installed packages, just to install most of them right again, as it is
often the case for kde builds or such where many packages are
build-depending on the same packages. 
Building the packages in the right build-dep order is another goal for an
improved buildd queue. 

Adding packages to N-F-U is a quick and maybe short-term solution, though...
