So, is the idea to create a large collection of machines on which to
perform automated builds as per the build farm, on an hourly basis or

If so, then when you have them sucessfully building Samba and manually
running the build farm scripts, give me a yell with machine names and
I'll set them up.  We do however need these to be pretty well 'full
time', otherwise just get lag issues.  It's also not generally worth
duplicating (under VMware in particular) machines we already have, so
check if we already have a particular setup building.
