I've never tried to set up a buildd (only sbuild) but I've heard
before that it's fairly complex and hardly documented.  Since you have
obtained the knowledge and insights about setting up a buildd, have
you documented this to make the knowledge available to everyone?  Or
is this a shared secret only passed along within the m68k cabal?
