Yes, they are.

Yes, it takes about two days for a full cycle with that compiler.

I added the tests because I think it might help sort out which issues are
platform issues and which issues are compiler related. I'm hoping that the
incremental runs will have a much shorter turnaround time than the full
runs. So maybe this is not so much of a problem.

I'll keep the tests running for a week or so and if the turnaround really
is too slow, I'll remove the gcc tests again.

The biggest problem currently is the wave library which seems to hang cxx
on that platform. I had a successful regression run for it last Friday, but
when I check out with that timestamp, the compiler hangs anyway. So maybe
I'm just not patient enough...
