There will be a lot more than 3K ports now, Ryan's message was a while
back. Give it a week or so and pretty much it will have caught up with
the others, I suspect. So a short term inconvenience, nothing more. long
term no reason to rely on builds from source.
I am just very dubious that any measure of time based on the buildbots
will in practice be of much interest or use to users, as they will not
give a good estimate of the time on *their* machine. Seems to me a waste
of time to invest much effort in this direction.
