The primary intention for running it on boot was to make sure that it
gets build after a new installation. Many systems don't run over night,
so they won't get the nightly or weekly run. That said, the check if
everything is up-to-date is too slow, if someone wants to analyze *why*,
that sounds like a better idea.
