No requirements in particular.  See http://wiki.python.org/moin/BuildBot
Pretty much it should have good network connectivity and someone we
can contact who can administer the box.  For example, in the past we
have had to have ports opened up so the tests can pass.  Possibly we
might want to get different version of libraries installed to test
with (e.g., berkeley db v 4.x).

These boxes are fine and faster than half the current machines.

It would be best if we get configurations we don't already have.  We
have no NetBSD boxes.  We have one FreeBSD (6.2 supposedly), although
it's 32-bit.
