Here and now I can offer two VZ containers (x86-32 and x86-64) on
one of my servers (Core i7 975). They aren't heavily loaded, so I
also use them for package building in my own separate containers
(they are build-{i386,x86-64} well known
to our users, and my FTP server resides in a nearby container).

The only problem is the IPv4 addresses shortage there, but it may
be solved with SSH listening at some other port. Also, I have a
plenty of IPv6 addresses :-)

Another option is to use my servers for pre-official builds and
perform official builds (with signatures, etc) somewhere else -
in a really trusted environment (most of my servers are located
in a datacenter, so some unpleasant people could gain physical
access there).

Most of `make installworld` issues are easily fixed by splitting
the installorder.conf lines. Some lines fail, but they are likely
to succeed on a next iteration.

Should I step in to do that, or you'd like to do that yourself?
