As I mentioned before, this is likely to be resolved shortly after the 
upcoming infra-thon. That's happening this coming weekend, and should 
result in a number of new VMs (VMWare running Linux or FreeBSD - not sure 
which) and Zones (Solaris 10). We have the choice of a VM or a Zone for 
nightlies. I have a slight preference for the latter, since it means that 
the infra@ folks will handle upgrades and other maintenance, which we'd 
have to do ourselves with a VM.
