I think it would be helpful to start fully building the branch even if
there are still some large parts of the tree that don't build.

That's because of Rust: it takes a very long time (days?) to build Rust,
and so people won't even be able to start testing their leaf packages,
many of which depend on Rust at this point. I know it has been built for
this branch in recent weeks, but I guess it was garbage collected.

I thought about building the packages "by hand" and setting up a gcroot
manually, but it would be nice to work within the CI infrastructure.
