Have you solved this problem yet?

Why go to the bother of building the packages on a separate machine? Is there a compelling reason not to build them on the webserver?

In the case of these three specific ports/packages, the Makefile comprise of little more than a `tar xf' and perhaps a sed or two (ie. no compiling or linking required).
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.
