I think automatic notifications are a good idea too.

Assuming the build tree is broken, what would be the frequency of the
reports?  Also, at most one report would be sent for the same broken
CVS state?

Although the originator (currently "NetBSD Test Fixture") would already
be fixed and unique, it would probably also be good for the Subject
field to also have an easily recognizable prefix, perhaps like
"Releng-Failure: " or the like?
