GNU/kFreeBSD on http://buildd.net

Thanks to Ingo Juergensmann, the kfreebsd-i386 architecture is now listed on http://buildd.net. That means that Debian developers can now easily check the state of their packages, and if they fail to build, to find why.

The requirement to appear on http://buildd.net was to use wanna-build and make its output available somewhere on the web. As I was still using a set of (very) ugly shells scripts to handle the build-daemon, I spent a part of the last days to setup wanna-build, and to understand how it works. With wanna-build a lot of thing is automatic, and almost everything could be controled via the mail interface. That would save me some time that I could invest in porting packages to GNU/kFreeBSD.
