What do servers have to do with compiling ICS?

My machine here at home takes about 2 hours to build the entire source tree from scratch, and produce the image suitable for installation on the Galaxy Nexus (and I don't even have SSDs). Once the main tree is built, patches and corrections only require rebuilding certain files, not the entire system.

My server, on the other hand, is a server. Not a development system. Not a build sandbox. Not a compiler farm. Building projects for debug purposes on "servers" makes no sense whatsoever.
13ths system isnt as powerful =)

Nope. you have to figure out what libs need replaced. It's very easy to make the kernel panic and of course moto in their infinite wisdom has ADB start only in blur, or in the case of 2nd init after we hijack the init. If it fails somewhere in init then you get nothing (about 95% of the time this is what happens)
