I'm pretty sure that the images are getting built, as, for example, 
today's daily contains the binary packages build from version 1.60 of 
linux-kernel-di-sparc-2.6, which was uploaded to the archive just 
yesterday. It's just that the kernel which gets installed into the 
image is old. I don't know how the build works, but it might be that 
the kernel which makes it onto the iso is the same one the build 
machine is running (or something :-).

Best regards.
