Stricter buildd requirements might do it.  Perhaps an upper limit on
the number of days allowed to pass from a package is upload until the
autobuilder did its first build, and an upper limit on the number of
days allowed to pass with a broken toolchain before the arch is
removed would work.

But at the moment, there are very few problems with the autobuilders,
it seem.  The packages with missing builds on some archs are listedon
and it is not bad compared to earlier.

  Missing archiectures blocking packages: arm(86) mips(84) ia64(74)
    alpha(65) mipsel(64) m68k(61) sparc(60) powerpc(59) s390(51) hppa(46)

Of course, the relative order and package count in this list varies a
lot over time.
