AFAIK, Andy was using Dual Opteron's and I was using an FX-55. Compiler flags were identical. Hardware differed slightly, I was using HW RAID, I'm not sure if Andy was using RAID or not.

Were you both using identical hardware? CPUs? Compiler flags? This may seem like an obvious line of questioning, but I've found that it always isn't.
Anyway, assuming that pacbuid is using a chroot for all the builds, it should work independently of the currently running kernel and for that matter, the currently running system. That said, what if a makefile tries to use the current kernel version (uname -r) for something? Does pacbuild have facilities for dealing with this sort of problem?
