What I did was to set up a different scheduler for archivist's build
slaves. This scheduler only runs for the most important branches, so it will
put less of a toll on his machines (which he also needs for other
purposes). And we can move other hosts there with similar restrictions on load.

We could, though mysql-5.1-testing has the special purpose of being an
unmodified MySQL branch. But for now we don't really need to, as a side effect
of the above change is that all branches currently run on archivist's build
hosts support AM_MAKEFLAGS.
