I suppose what I'm getting at is two things:

1) What are the build platform and source repository that is likely to cause
least breakage building things?

2) If the answers to 1) are 'use something ancient', what would be the least
painful way to make it less ancient?

If people (Chris, Alan, Lee, others) are currently building stuff and fixing
up problems, it would be good to understand which versions the patches going
in to the autobuilder are intended for.
