New KDE Build Environment

iXsystems recently donated a build environment to the FreeBSD KDE ports team. This means that the porters don’t have to compile KDE on their own systems (if you’ve ever compiled the KDE port you have an idea of how long that takes), which should speed up the porting process.

The build server is a VM running FreeBSD HEAD, allocated one core and 8 gigs of RAM from the host, which is a dual Nehalem 5520 Xeon with 32 gigs of RAM. The build environment has access to QAT’s distfile cache and a dedicated database server for the tinderbox database.
