But since they don't come from the same CVS tree, I can't see how to do 
that cleanly without dicking around with the common code directories such 
as libiberty and include -- experience has shown that with the public CVS 
repositories that is fraught with problems.  I have done it in the past, 
but it breaks the principal that the sources you are testing are the 
sources you are committing, so it isn't really a viable option.
