As I'm a Linux Platform mantainer myself (well, sort of) those questions are 
of interest to me, as well. For the record, my answers would be:
- for RCs the latest cvs, for releases the tagged version (or a checkout 
around Ton's release ahoy! message).
- make
- if time permits I do regression tests, otherwise I just check if the binary 
runs and test some of the new features. Thanks to the testing the x86 build 
recieves, there usually are no problems on powerpc.
- not asked: I use a plain debian stable (currently etch) chroot for building.


PS: if anybody's interested, I could do some more exotic linux builds (besides 
powerpc): linux/mips and maybe even linux/parisc. The mips machine (sgi 
origin 2000) uses a lot of power, so I'd only do a build on it if there 
really is a need for it.
