Yes, that's the 'clean' step of the buildbot build process.  I'd
suggest making another clone elsewhere (you can clone from the
buildarea just to make the clone faster, but I'd leave the buildarea
alone otherwise), then building and testing should be as simple as
`./configure --with-pydebug && make && ./python -m test.test_posix`.

As far as the failure itself, I have no comment.

It's kinda nice to get something non-PEP460 in the inbox this week :)
