The FreeBSD Package Cluster
I will describe the structure and implementation of the FreeBSD Package Cluster. The package cluster is used to build binary packages of third-party software from the FreeBSD Ports Collection, for all supported FreeBSD architectures and releases, as well as performing QA of the ports collection and of the FreeBSD-current and FreeBSD-stable branches.

A full package build for the i386 4.x branch takes less than 24 hours to build 11000 packages, using 27 client build machines (Pentium 3 800MHz or slower). Achieving this level of performance has required a number of optimizations, which I will describe in detail. I will also describe plans for future work.
