The porterboxes are designed for debugging build problems that a
maintainer might have.  While most maintainers have access to an amd64
machine, if a problem occurs on sparc, a maintainer would be able to use
the appropriate porterbox for determining why the package is not working
or why it fails to build.  There are porterboxes for every architecture.
