The "gdb kills sarti" issue shouldn't be an issue once it's upgraded
to sarge and running a kernel that actually works... The lack of backup
buildd is simply because nobody has gone and set one up, it's not like
we're lacking beefy hardware. Same with a porter machine.

Easier access to the information would help this. Trawling the web
interface isn't my idea of fun, but if the fail logs for hppa hit my mailbox
I would be more inclined to help...
