Apart from disk space that a rather small system. On a dual cpu one
would like to run two buildds giving 128Mb ram to each. But c++
programms easily eat up 300-500MB during compile. Even with only one
buildd the system would swap for bigger packages.

Currently what I think would be far more usfull than another buildd
(alpha has an empty build queue anyway atm) would be testing the
debian-installer. From Tru64 I guess you have srm installed so the cds
with aboot should boot and work. If you have the time please do test
