synching non-free packages for sarge

One issue that we may wish to address before releasing sarge is that
some arch-dependent non-free packages are behind because the
autobuilders only touch main and porters only sporadically build them
for their architectures.

For instance, until I built bsdgames-nonfree 2.16-1 (aka rogue) for
several of the outstanding architectures myself just now, it was up to
date only for my own architecture (i386 :-P) and two others (amd64 and
powerpc).  It's still behind on arm and mips, and has never been built
at all on mipsel.  I'd be happy to take care of them too, if I only
knew where.  (As far as I can tell, I can't log into any arm boxes at
all, with debussy and rameau down and elara and europa restricted.  As
for mips(el), casals's motd forbids manual builds and vaughan has no
chroots, so I seem to be out of luck there as well.  Are there any
machines I can use for this purpose?  If not, could the relevant
porters please take care of bsdgames-nonfree?  Thanks.)

BTW, thanks as well to whoever built bsdgames-nonfree 2.16-1 for amd64
and powerpc.
