I think it's probably worth mentioning that:

	* -- the machine that is doing the automatic
	  rougly-daily builds of the NetBSD 1.6 release branch, is
	  a dual-Athlon machine.  Since its last kernel upgrade (to
	  fix an interrupt-related problem), it has been running for
	  23 days doing constant source tree builds of multiple
	  platforms, with a constant load average of about 4.5.

	  The results of tgm's work, BTW, can be seen at:

	* is in the process of being upgraded, and
	  3 days ago was temporarily moved to a dual-Athlon machine
	  while the new permanent machine is being built.

Both machines are Tyan "Guinness" boards with 2 1.5GHz Athlons and
the AMD 762 chipset (and dual on-board 3Com 3c980 10/100 Ethernet!).
