Well, if we wanted to run them more often than once every 6 months.
Also, we have in the past not done mass rebuilds for some releases
(where there is no change that needs one), which could mean a year or
more between runs. 

With enough computing power you can do a run in a week or so. 

Also, having the infrastructure setup to do them (scripts, etc) would
allow us to do them for proposed changes. Ie, We could do a mass
rebuild with PIE on by default and see what breaks and let people
install those packages to test, or changing other compiler or base
