For what it's worth, I have a source lined up for suitable 1U, P4-2.4Ghz
machines from a name-brand vendor for about $800 each.  But I've _way_
more than maxed out my personal "stuff for NetBSD" budget over the past
few years; if anyone else would be interested in donating for this purpose,
however, perhaps it would be useful to you to know that I can either:

A) Tell you what to get, and where, that'll be useful to the Project and
   the donation of which will presumably be very happily accepted

B) Tell you how much cash to donate so that we can just buy said items
   directly ourselves (see above).
