Thank you for doing this Jeremy.  One minor nit to pick is that some of
these failed builds are impossible to debug and hence fix without more
information than is present in the <package>.failure.log file.  The most
information that file provides is: "the build failed, if you could
access this local file, you might be able to figure out why. nya, nya,
nya".  Which, when you're trying to figure out why the build failed on
an architecture to which you have no access, is more than useless and
quite a bit frustrating.  The 4.5M rpm log is, of course, present when
the build succeeds.  This seems, uh, backwards to me.

Seth? Any chance you could change those build scripts to copy the
rpm.log file when the build fails in addition to when it succeeds?
