If I understood correctly, part of the problem is/was that some of the
rebuilds simply didn't work because of problems with the new compilers.

The current tools don't allow programs of arch X into testing if they fail to
build on arch Y. I think that in general this is a good idea.

I don't know if this is comparable, but my experience with non-ix86 Linux
kernels is that if the people responsible for them allow their version to
fall behind on the bleeding-edge kernel, the resulting split might be
permanent. :-/
