This is a good question, because honestly I have no idea about that
;-) It is the first time for me setting up an autobuilder network.
But in general, you can build anything on any machine - at least
smaller packages should work. If you can build the Kernel, LibreOfice
and Firefox on that machine, it should work as buildd. (Not everything
at the same time, of course ^^)
See [1] for some buildd info. You can also check out the Debian
machines here: [2] (Everything which has the buildd flag builds
packages, or look for names of classical componists, because that is
the naming policy for builders @Debian)
The minimum buildd requirement seems to be about 60GB of space and 2GB
RAM. But I think even less would still be working as buildd - it will
just be a very slow buildd then.
