Start writing automated tools ;)

What I believe we need is a (or more than one) supertinderbox that
builds everything and runs the automated tests provided by
LDTP/Dogtail. I really didn't get very far on that- the jhbuilt
tinderbox bits are there, and it runs make check, but that is about

Some combinations needed:
* a plain-jane tinderbox to build things
* tinderbox + make check
* tinderbox + make check + LDTP/Dogtail
* tinderbox + -Werror
* tinderbox + warnings -> crashes

All except LDTP/Dogtail are pretty easy to set up, just require
time/hardware. Federico, jb may even have some hardware for you, if
you want it...
