I'm afraid you are barking up the wrong tree. I'm also running test
builds before committing changes.

I agree that build failures are annoying and should happen much less frequent.
But they don't stop me from trying out NetBSD-current personally. A failed
build just means that you have to fix it (which I do frequently) or try the
update at a later time.
