This is no longer an argument with the GCC compile farm:

http://gcc.gnu.org/wiki/CompileFarm

<<
How to Get Involved ?
If you are a GCC developer and want access to the compileFarm for GCC
development and testing, or if you are a free software developer wishing
to set up automated testing of a piece of free software with the current
GCC development version (preferably with a test suite), please send 

     1. your ssh public key (HOME/.ssh/authorized_keys format) *in
        attachment* and not inline in the email and 
        
     2. your prefered UNIX login 

to laurent at guerby dot net.
