Except that we're not overloaded, and that I just remembered arrakis,
which has been idle for ages now. Rather than using my new VME hardware
to do this, I'd think arrakis is the ideal host to build GNOME2.6 on.
I'm setting up a chroot there currently, and will start a build
soonishly; any pointers to a list of packages to be built, ordered by
dependency, would be great.
