I just got the configuration on that machine fixed over the weekend, and
the first regression run (teeks99-02n) executed against it last night.
Looking at the results, it is clear that there are still some serious bugs
there, many results complain about not being able to find microsoft's
compiler "cl". I'm planning to leave that runner in the list, it should be
executed every couple days.
