I stopped doing FreeBSD pkgsrc bulk builds because the system locked up
very frequently. It was not my hardware. I was told it ran 18 days
straight before I started doing bulk builds and then it was getting two or
three random reboots per day. A bad stick of memory was found and then
later the problems continued. I was told that scorch marks were found on
the motherboard :)

I had built around 2500? pkgsrc packages until we gave up on that

I now have a login account for doing DragonFly pkgsrc bulk builds. I'll
post details to this list once I get some builds done on it.
