I'm not too sure if Jenkins is actually a good choice, just because I
question that there's a working Java especially for old Unix-alike
systems that GCC still (in theory) supports. What about eg. older IRIX
or Ultrix systems?  ...or can you, instead of using the Java-based
client part of Jenkins, issue all commands over a SSH (or maybe even
Telnet...) session?  Is there a module for this available?

We've been using Jenkins at the company I work for, though only for
up-to-date mainstream systems with current state-of-the-art software.
But what I really like is to also support old and legacy systems, as
well as probably current ones with only a minimal userbase.
