	I actually tried to get Apache Yetus testing Apache Hadoop on the hadoop-win box last year.
 (This was before qbt mode existed.)  I gave up because the components needed to build trunk
weren't installed and it looked like the box itself was ill. I moved on to the Mac build which,
while tricky, got it working with a bit of magic.  Then they took the Mac away.  IBM provided
access to a PowerPC machine, so I moved onto the ppc64le build. After a lot of hand wringing,
we got it up and running and stable enough to show how broken the build is by our usage of

	It should be noted that getting infra support for non-Linux/x86 builds is a pretty major
exercise in frustration.  They don't really have the time, those boxes tend to go down often,
and rarely get updated. (The Solaris box is running a really old build of Solaris 10.  So
old, that when it came out, I was still employed by Sun...)  If folks are actually serious
about adding more platforms, then I'd suggest that some of these big vendors actually cough
up some cash to move the precommit infrastructure off of the ASF and onto something more reliable
with more platform diversity.
