That was not my understanding. It has been used for that purpose because 
we do not have any continuous integration infrastructure ready to use 
it. There is a need for continuous integration and it places a high 
demand on resources. Tool are just one part of the project, not the sole 
focus. If a tools build takes a little longer to complete that is not a 
huge issue. Patches need to be checked in a timely manner.

Why ? There are other machines. Why are building the binary tools 
packages so dependent on that specific machine ?
