Hmm, buildbot has support for that, but I don't quite understand what
buildbot output on IRC would be good for. IMO the buildbot web-site
should be accessible by anyone and the bot should send mails in the case
of a build failure. Given how seldom the GIMP tree does not compile,
this shouldn't create too much traffic.

Sure, it's easy to figure out. But with a list of commits to consider
(commits between the last successful build and the broken one), it's
even easier.
