It happens frequently, but the kbuildall report from 5063 says it built, and
5064 works for me. Hopefully tracking it will make it happen less often.
Each port that gets to the "warnings free" point will cover more and more of
the code base.

I guess that depends on how many boards it breaks and how long it would take
us to fix them.
