I actually don't know either, yet. I would like to use Orcas, but it's
not clear when this will be released; neither is clear when 2.6 will
be released.

I notice that Kristjan would like to see a PCbuild8 buildbot.

I think the scripts in Tools\buildbot might be tricky, along with
possible changes to the master.

That's an interesting option. I had myself arranged for the master to
issue a different build command to an AMD64 build slave.

Doing so in a separate message.
