Seconded. Strongly seconded.

I wouldn't want a mac68k bulk build to waste even a second on anything
qt/gtk2/mozilla, until the last package that's buildable and usable within
reason has been built. If somebody wants to build meta/kde on mac68k
"because they can", more power to them, but that shouldn't be a priority
for a bulk build.

An exclude list is actually a feature which neither of the two bulk
subsystems that we have supports.
