Hmm, I suspect something funny is going on here.  See:
which is about someone using buildbot on NetBSD back in '03 -- he may
be able to help out.

By the way, in the run you sent me, I see:
  exceptions.IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied:
which is harmless (http://twistedmatrix.com/trac/ticket/2409), but may
be interfering with the subprocesses the tests are spawning..

One thing I do notice in the log is that build steps which should take
just a shade over three seconds ("sleep 3") are taking 10-12 seconds:

2009-07-07 09:44:23-0500 [Broker,client]  sleep 3
2009-07-07 09:44:23-0500 [Broker,client]   in dir
slavebase-bot1/quickdir1/build (timeout 1200 secs)
2009-07-07 09:44:33-0500 [-] command finished with signal None, exit
code 0, elapsedTime: 10.516390

The test is trying to run 20 of these steps, and is only running about
12 of them in the 120-second timeout period.  Any idea why this might
be happening on this system?
