This is very cool.

It would be good if the "done" packages could be links to the binary 
packages, and if the "failed" ones would link to the build logs.

What does the "apache" listing mean? Is it apache13, apache2 or 
apache22? And which version of them?

When this tool has grown up, it should probably be integrated into the 
README.html generation, and maybe it can even replace it. I don't like 
the current practice that the README.html are in the pkgsrc/ directory, 
since they cause lots of noise when downloading pkgsrc.tar.gz and doing 
a "cvs update" later.
