OK, I deleted the checkout directory on one of my buidslaves and
re-ran the build steps. The tests passed. So my conclusion is that a
full rebuild is needed for the tests to pass after the last checkins
(which included files such as configure and configure.in).

The Python buildbots are doing full rebuilds every time, that's why
they're green and happy, but the Pybots are just doing incremental

Maybe the makefiles should be modified so that a full rebuild is
triggered when the configure and configure.in files are changed?

At this point, I'll have to tell all the Pybots owners to delete their
checkout directories and start a new build.
