I could (in theory - I have a metric shed load - well actually a 1966
build garage full - of everything from sparcstation 2's to E4500, Netras
and v2xx servers though being sparc32 and sparc64 and no new stuff it
would be relatively pointless putting more than one or 2 servers up)
setup a redports like service to build ports - but there is the other
issue of actually testing they work... if successfully built..
