[webkit-dev] SnowLeopard debug buildbot not there

The commit-queue runs release for two reasons:

1) It's faster.
2) Most developers build/test debug.  Having the commit-queue build
release covers one more base.

Now that we have a cluster of commit-queue machines, we could probably
build and test both debug and release.
