Re: Buildds still not picking up new architectures, why?

No. There is one system where wanna-build databases are stored. That
single one wanna-build system has, of course, multiple databases, but
there's only one version of wanna-build (the distinction is made with a
command-line parameter in the form of "-b <arch>/build-db"

There are a number of buildd machines for each arch that connect to that
one w-b machine and call it correctly, based on their local
configuration and other things. The number of buildd machines is not
limited, certainly not to just one (in fact, requirements for etch
include "having more than one buildd").

Fun will now commence
