True. Like I said, I'm not saying there's no work-arounds for what I 
experienced. My point is merely that I think in the end it is better to 
let the buildd do all build for all archs. I.e. we continue current way 
of uploading, but buildd will rebuild the uploaded bin (most often x86 
I guess) to ensure a proper build in a clean env - just like you 
suggested in your previous respons.
