Thanks brian. That was a best answer.
But I have other Q:
What is the TBD machines?
Excuse me about that. There are no information on Debian wiki to explaining the purpose of TBD machine.

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.
