there is a difference between the compiler used to build LLVM and dragonegg
(gcc 4.7 or better) and the compiler the plugin will be loaded into, which
could be older.  For example, the nightly test could be run using gcc-4.6+
dragonegg, with LLVM and dragonegg built using gcc-4.7.  However, as most of
the buildbots are bootstrapping LLVM/gcc/dragonegg, and for them these
theoretically different gcc's need to be the same, you are right that most
of the buildbots are junk now.

For zapping buildbots you can just remove them in zorg.  For adding or
moving buildbots you may well need access to the machines.  If you send me
your public ssh key I can arrange for you to be able to login.

Ciao, Duncan.
