and notably the remake-merge-builds script, which describes
the configs I build on my x86-64 box. I also build on OSX and
on a 32-bit ARM system. (This is all behind the local firewall
and I'm afraid I can't provide access to other people.)

The major thing is that buildbots which build for native x86-64
are almost useless, because everybody tests on that anyway.
Useful buildbots need to be building for the obscure cases:
 * OSX
 * 32-bit systems
 * ARM, PPC and other non-standard host architectures
 * clang
 * Windows
 * linux-user only and static-only builds

Unfortunately this implies maintaining an awkward build farm
full of devboards and other fragile hardware.
