Adding to Thorsten's answer: You should also have the network
connectivity to upload the produced builds to the pre-release server.
So dial-up connections are problematic, but if you have a flatrate,
then no issue here.

So when you have a machine:
* that can build LibreOffice
* and does so regularly, and continuously
* provides a stable build-environment
* can upload the builds

you have all that is needed.

If you only turn the machine on for building once every month, or keep
changing your system's installation all the time (so rolling
distribution is not ideal for this purpose, as then the question is
whether a new bug is because the build-system was updated or whether
it is because of a bug in LO's code), then providing daily builds with
that machine is not a good idea.
