You might want to take a look at the sourceforge compilefarm, a service that
does this sort of things a variety of linux/BSD systems.

From news release
( )
"VA Linux Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:LNUX), a recognized leader in Linux and Open
Source solutions, today introduced the SourceForge(TM) CompileFarm--a unique
service that gives Open Source developers a convenient way to build and test
applications on multiple versions of the Linux and BSD operating systems
over the Internet. Other new features on SourceForge, the world's largest
Open Source development center, include the SourceForge Patch Manager and
Support Manager--two Web-based tools that make it easy for project
administrators to manage code submissions and support requests. "

Its not quite what you were looking for but it might be a start.
