Could they possibly build on amd64 in qemu?
Or rather why is there problem building 50G of images on ppc or sparc?
Surely the machines are harder to get by and so are often disks that
fit in but 50G is not that much. It's also possible to make the build
scripts upload the finished images elsewhere requiring only e few
gigabytes of space on the build machine.
