32-bit SPARCstations are not fast enough to keep up with the archive, and in
fact are incapable of building some source packages that require 64-bit
syscalls to be present.

An Ultra1 may or may not be fast enough to be useful for Sparc; vore, which
is borderline on being able to keep up with unstable on its own right now,
is an Ultra2 300MHz.

I have no idea what reasonable specs would be for an ARM buildd, as I don't
think we have any machines to compare it to which would count as
"reasonable" under the proposed rules for release archs.
