On what grounds do you claim the buildfarm result is unstable?
I've been using that for a long time and it works fine.  Moreover,
ignoring that data is a bad idea because it reflects platform-specific
variations in the set of typedefs that are known.  If you build a
typedefs list based only on what works on your machine, it likely
won't work for other people.
