I managed to run the buildfarm script. Needed to make a small change to 
the perl script as on Haiku everyone is "root", but other than that it 
runs fine.
I have only one server available running Haiku. Can I also run a normal 
Postgresql installation on that same machine? If so, I will be able to 
run the build multiple times a day.

Yes, I already have done that. I think I don't need all the changes 
that were done then, but we will see.

I understand. I will start working on reapplying my patches to master. 
Git is still new to me, but I'm making progress.

Kind regards,
