I could arrange ssh access to the build slave if that would help
anyone who wants to look into that.  Just contact me directly.

In terms of the overall release, I'm also fine with upgrading the
build slave to 6.4.  Or I could jump up to 7.2 instead.  When I first
brought the build slave up, 7.x wasn't finalized yet - not sure now
which release is more prevalent in use.
