Done. Failures are marked according to the known reason.
There are of course some time (time limit exceeded) failures reported
for Multiprecision and VMD.
But there are also cerr (internal compiler error), in particular many
for VMD on GCC 4.8.

Please check if everything is ok and don't hesitate to report bugs.
Additional suggestions are also welcome.

E.g. I'm thinking about upgrading the Summary page
to also display specific failure type, i.e. the most significant one.
Right now it's all yellow.
Would it be useful for someone?
The hierarchy could be:

The colors aren't displayed in regression matrices for master branch
because the old styles are used:
while this one:
was updated properly. Why?
