I created a mess of shell scripts and in the end I have scripts

1) create buildslave user + and setup the environment
2) create missing buildslaves on a build-host
3) create missing buildmasters on the master host

This has made things much simpler.

The buildmasters share one global configuration file and their
own configuration is ~5 lines of including and 
customizing the global config.
