I think this isn't directly related. The build on redports had status 
"dud" in
math/atlas which means the port has set IGNORE. I have no good way of 
telling which
IGNORE line it is yet but it can only be one of:

You have set WITH_ARCHDEF, but have not defined ARCHDEF
You must select at least one of WITH_SHARED and WITH_STATIC

both sound strange.

No objections from my side. You did the best you could and have some 
logfiles that
prove that. So it is also a bit my fault for not implementing to show 
the exact
IGNORE line but I have added it to my todo and will fix that.

A huge backlog is usually not a problem because there are build 
priorities and an
somewhat intelligent scheduler so you won't end up waiting a day until 
the first
build is finished. Also right now on very busy days the backend catches 
up during
the night so build capacity is not too underpowered right now. I'm 
still working
on getting more machines but that takes some time.
