In theory residual build is the same as for scummvm, I guess builbot  
need additional residual build 'tree'. I'm not admin for buildbot  
sever so I can't help here.

Builds for Debian and Ubuntu are with shared libraries, and this  
libraries are differ on each distro. So it need separated build.
Ok, so I'll look into crosscompile. I guess I need look into devel  
maillist what are requirements.
