wicked! Let me know in case you have any problems with mgar. Should
become the default interface to GAR soon, thus, the more users and
feedback the better.

The login host only runs a restricted set of packages and isn't intended
to be used for packaging (only logins and package submission). Simply
invoke mgar on the build* hosts and you'll be fine.
