No, you have to have a slave.  It can run on the same machine, it can
run as the same user, but it has to exist.  The buildmaster can only
tell slaves to do work (of course, this is all written in Python, so
it is a simple matter of programming to *make* the buildmaster capable
of doing the slave's job, but there's not really any reason to try to
do this).
