I think the builds from the buildbot could be directly used.  I think 
there are a couple of things that would need to be changed:
  - create separate builds for 3.4.1 and trunk
  - create weekly 'dev builds' that will be a bit different than the 
nightlies, with extra steps required and correct configure options.
  - create specific build for weekly rat + coverity + ??? for code 
analysis that does not need to be run daily (or nightly)
